Postsecondary Settings and Transition Services for Students with Intellectual Disabilities: Models and Research
Neubert, Debra A.; Moon, M. Sherril
Focus on Exceptional Children, v39 n4 p1 Dec 2006
Postsecondary high school students for college and employment that leads to adult self-sufficiency is a daunting task for educators (Lerner & Brand, 2006; Spence, 2007). This task becomes more complicated as technology changes rapidly, as policy makers mandate standards that all students must meet, and as schools evolve to serve more students with linguistic, academic, and social challenges. For students with intellectual disabilities (ID), their families, and the educators who provide services in the public schools, the complexity of this task increases further. Obtaining adequate support to participate in educational opportunities, attaining long-term funding for post-school services, and locating employment sites for individual students with ID require creative collaborative ventures and changes in policy (Hart, Zimbrich, & Ghiloni, 2001; Neubert, Moon, & Grigal, 2004; Stodden & Whelley, 2004). Models are available allowing some students with ID to access college courses and to explore employment options that reach beyond sheltered work during their final years of public schooling (Doyle, 2003; Grigal, Neubert, & Moon, 2001; Hall, Kleinert, & Kearns, 2000; Hart, Zafft, & Zimbrich, 2001; Pearman, Elliott, & Aborn, 2004). These models can provide a blueprint for replicating similar services and for identifying issues to address through research and policy efforts. (Contains 7 online resources.)
