Impact of Legislation on Post-School Transition Practice for Young People with Additional Support Needs in Scotland
Richardson, Thomas D.; Jindal-Snape, Divya; Hannah, Elizabeth F. S.
British Journal of Special Education, v44 n3 p239-256 Sep 2017
A longitudinal study was conducted to understand post-school transition practice for young people with additional support needs (ASN) before and after the implementation of key legislation, the Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2004, amended in 2009. Primary data were collected from one local authority in Scotland. Twelve professionals involved in post-school transition planning were interviewed in 2004 and eight in 2010. Minutes of transition meetings from one school for three young people prior to the implementation of the Act and four after the implementation were analysed. Results show some changes since the implementation of the Act.
