Chambers, DaLee; Rabren, Karen; Dunn, Caroline
Career Development for Exceptional Individuals, v32 n1 p42-52 2009
This study examined responses from the "Alabama Post-School Transition Survey" to determine how students with and without disabilities compare in postschool outcomes. Responses provided information about the students' employment, residence, postsecondary education and training, barriers, perceptions of high school preparation, and interests and activities. Students with and without disabilities provided significantly different responses related to their personal interests and activities, postsecondary education and training, and residence. Students with and without disabilities provided similar responses to the questions related to high school preparation, employment, and barriers encountered since leaving high school. Implications of similarities and differences are discussed. (Contains 4 tables.)
