The structure for this Manual is as follows: (1) Chapter 1 introduces HS/HT and describes why it exists; (2) Chapter 2 lays the foundation for the program components and for the documented need for intervention strategies for youth with disabilities; (3) Chapter 3 explains the process of becoming affiliated with the HS/HT network; (4) Chapter 4 provides direction on how to start a new state or local site; (5) Chapter 5 provides a wealth of information on finding financial resources to sustain your site; (6) Chapters 6 through 9 describe the design features for the HS/HT program. The chapter structure for each design feature includes an introduction to the design feature, a description of how to prepare for and implement the design feature component, suggested timelines for implementing the activities, and a listing of exhibits (including a citation of research findings to support the design feature); (7) Chapter 10 focuses on program evaluation, reporting, and outcomes; (8) Chapter 11 discusses how to market HS/HT to a variety of audiences; (9) Chapter 12 contains a glossary of HS/HT terms; (10) Chapter 13 provides research references and further resources to site operators.
