Transitions to Adulthood for Youth with Disabilities: Emerging Themes for Practice and Research
Stewart, Debra; Gorter, Jan Willem; Freeman, Matt
Prevention Researcher, v20 n2 p3-6 2013
The three common themes are emerging from recent research on positive approaches to adult transitions for youth with disabilities. The first theme acknowledges that a person's condition is only one factor that influences the developmental process of transitioning into adulthood; the second theme addresses the complexity of the numerous interactions between personal and environmental factors that have been identified; and the third theme summarizes evidence to support a positive approach to youth development with a goal of full participation of all youth in inclusive communities. Implications for service professionals and researchers are discussed. (Contains 1 footnote.)
