North Carolina Transition Services Cooperative Personnel Preparation Program. Final Report.
Test, David W.
This final report describes achievements and activities of a 3-year federally supported project by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to develop and deliver semester-long courses for professionals charged with providing transition services to students with disabilities. The project developed four courses and delivered them using distance education technology at the home campus and three partner sites across the state. Each of the project's objectives is addressed. Evaluation results support the project's effectiveness. One-hundred-fifty-six professionals received training through the courses and 45 sets of course materials were disseminated to North Carolina universities and state agencies. This package also contains the course materials for the four courses: (1)"Transition and Life Skills," which explores individualized transition planning, career education and community-based instruction, adult services, and the roles of business and industry; (2) "Community Based Methods," which considers curricula and instructional methods associated with transition and supported employment services, supports, and outcomes for individuals with disabilities; (3) "Interagency Collaboration"; and (4) "Internship." Each course packet includes a sample course syllabus/course assignments, sample lecture notes and PowerPoint slides, and a sample test bank. (DB)
