Raabe, Becky; Hilts-Scott, Shirley; Santa Maria, Karen; Swearingen, Tina
Three brochures provide basic information and resources on post-high school options for students with disabilities. The first brochure (Becky Raabe) developed in March 2000, explores college and university options. After listing prominent individuals whose disabilities did not stop them from continuing their education, information is provided on accommodations for students with various disabilities as required by federal legislation. Information on adapted college entrance exams is also offered. A resource lists includes 6 references, 8 organizations, and contact information for 16 Arizona colleges and universities. The second brochure (Shirley Hilts-Scott and Karen Santa Maria) revised in August 2000, is on vocational education and other training opportunities. Noting the need to begin planning in high school with Individualized Transition Plans, suggestions are offered for vocational education, employment, vocational rehabilitation services, community participation, and development of independent living skills. A resource list identifies 14 Arizona agencies and organizations and 4 national organizations. The third brochure (Tina Swearingen) developed in July 2001, explores military options. It also begins by listing military leaders with attention deficit disorder or learning disabilities. It then explains the difference between enlisted and commissioned military careers and describes various university military programs. It notes opportunities in the military's civilian work force and dispels common myths. Contact information for the military branches and Arizona university military programs is attached. (DB)
