Preparing Students with Learning Disabilities for Postsecondary Education: What the Research Literature Tells Us about Transition Programs
Kosine, Natalie R.
Journal of Special Education Leadership, v20 n2 p93-104 Sep 2007
Students with learning disabilities are entering college at increasingly higher rates, but persistence and degree attainment is lower than that of their nondisabled peers. Poor transition planning has been identified as a likely contributor to this problem. In an effort to address the needs of these students, several studies have been conducted to establish effective transition planning approaches. These studies have been summarized and evaluated using the Outcome Research Coding Protocol guidelines developed by the National Panel for Evidence-Based School Counseling. Research and expert recommendations point to long-term, comprehensive, coordinated services as effective measures in transition planning. Coordinating efforts between school counselors and special educators in the development of college transition plans are discussed as "best practice" efforts in meeting the transition needs of students with learning disabilities.
