On Transition Services for Youth with Disabilities. On Point...Brief Discussions of Critical Issues in Urban Education.
Blumberg, Rick; Ferguson, Philip M.
This report presents some statistics that reveal how students with disabilities appear to be faring and identifies some strategies that appear to result in desirable outcomes. Data were obtained from national studies and surveys from 1985 through 1998. Inclusion in typical education, training, and community experiences results in better transition outcomes for youth with disabilities. Research also shows that school based learning experiences are essential to successful transitions. (SLD)
