Transition Policy in Minnesota: A Glance Back, A Look Ahead.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Inst. on Community Integration.
This report presents recommendations that address needed changes and improvements in state policies, administrative practices, and school and community service programs, in relation to school-to-adult-life transition of young people with disabilities in Minnesota. Recommendations were derived from two sources: (1) reviews of state plans and reports, and federal and state legislation and policies; and (2) interviews with policymakers, professionals, individuals with disabilities, and family members throughout Minnesota. The report begins with a brief history of Minnesota transition policy. Sixty-five recommendations are then presented, within the categories of state level, community level, and individual and family recommendations. A framework for a general planning and implementation process is then presented, focusing on interagency and agency-specific steps. Appendixes list over 50 source documents and reports, identify commonly used acronyms, and summarize the report's recommendations. (JDD)
