School-to-Life Transition: Perceptions of Youth in Behavior Intervention Programs
Flower, Andrea; McKenna, John William; Haring, Christa D.; Pazey, Barbara
Preventing School Failure, v59 n4 p217-226 2015
Seven high school students with emotional disturbance were interviewed regarding their perceptions of their school experiences in preparation for transition. Students received support services from a behavior intervention program but spent the majority of the school day in general education classes. Interview data were collectively coded and transition related themes were identified including curricular relevance and student engagement, postsecondary employment, social supports, and independent living skills. Findings regarding the identified themes are presented. This study highlights the need for student participation in transition programming and to provide education relevant to postsecondary aspirations. Implications, future research directions, and limitations are also discussed.
