Wei, Xin; Wagner, Mary; Hudson, Laura; Yu, Jennifer W.; Javitz, Harold
Remedial and Special Education, v37 n1 p3-14 Jan-Feb 2016
This study used propensity score techniques to assess the relationship between transition planning participation and goal-setting and college enrollment among youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Using data from Waves 1 through 5 of the National Longitudinal Transition Study-2, this study found that 2- or 4-year college enrollment rates were significantly higher among youth with ASDs who participated in transition planning and those who had a primary transition goal of college enrollment. Educational implications are discussed.
