Research Synthesis on Design of Effective Curricular Practices in Transition from School to the Community. Executive Summary. Technical Report No. 10.
Hanley-Maxwell, Cheryl; Collet-Klingenberg, Lana
This executive summary of a research synthesis on critical aspects of curricular tools for successful transition from school to work for students with disabilities provides a brief discussion of the topics addressed in the full report, including: (1) the foundation for transition, including the goals and target populations; (2) a review of transition-related curricular issues (general curricular models, a proposed model and supporting literature, selected curricular offerings, and practices which impact on the effectiveness of transition services); (3) areas of need for curricular tools; (4) guidelines for the development of quality curricular tools; and (5) barriers to quality curricular tool use and development. The proposed model focuses on individualized skill building in the academic, social, vocational, and independent living areas, with skills characterized as either first-order (core) skills, higher-order skills, or goal-specific skills. The conclusion urges focusing on self-determination as the main educational goal. (Contains approximately 130 references.) (DB)
