Williams-Diehm, Kendra L.; Benz, Michael R.
Journal for Vocational Special Needs Education, v30 n2 p4-15 Win 2008
This study examined the postsecondary outcomes of students with and without disabilities in the four major outcomes areas of post-secondary education, employment, independent living, and recreation and leisure. The target population included students graduating from one mid-sized school district from a southern state. A stratified random sample of 228 students with and without disabilities was selected. Data were collected prior to graduation and six-months following graduation. Differences between groups were analyzed using loglinear analyses based upon educational setting, disability category, gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic status. The findings indicated that differences among groups did exist for post-secondary outcomes. Recommendations for collecting district-level follow-up information on school leavers with and without disabilities are discussed. (Contains 6 tables.)
