School to Work Transition for Youths with Disabilities. Consensus Statement.
NIDRR Consensus Statement, v1 n6 Jan 1994
This consensus statement was the result of a conference on school-to-work transition for youths with disabilities which brought together service providers, consumers, family members, researchers, and others. Consensus was reached on several principles, organized around six broad areas: (1) what school-to-work transition for this population is and whom it is successfully serving; (2) essential components of a comprehensive school-to-work transition process for youth with disabilities; (3) roles and responsibilities of youth, families, educators, social service personnel, vocational rehabilitation specialists, employers, and others in the school-to-work transition process; (4) critical relationships among individuals and organizations in the school-to-work transition process; (5) public and private policies which facilitate successful implementation of school-to-work transition of youth with disabilities; and (6) needed research for expanding and improving school-to-work transition.
