Given the increasing enrollment of students with intellectual and developmental disabilities in postsecondary education and the potential impact of self-determination on postsecondary outcomes, this study analyzed data on the self-determination status of students with intellectual and developmental disabilities completing their first year of a postsecondary education program. Secondary school (e.g., inclusion in high school and participation in state assessments) and postsecondary education experiences (e.g., advocacy for accommodations, participation in social activities, and living arrangements) that predicted self-determination status were examined. Directions for future research and practice are discussed.
