An Evaluation of IEP Transition Components and Post-School Outcomes in Two States
Steele, Robert B.; Konrad, Moira; Test, David W.
Journal for Vocational Special Needs Education, v27 n2 p4-18 Win 2005
This study examined the quality of transition components of the IEPs of 28 high school graduates with disabilities, their projected postsecondary outcomes and levels of satisfaction with these outcomes, and the correspondence between projected and actual outcomes. Results indicated that, although the quality of the transition components was not exemplary, some of the outcomes for the students were quite positive. Examination of correspondence between the projected and actual outcomes showed that the greatest number of matches was in the area of employment. Results suggest that a comprehensive transition program is a critical ingredient for fostering post-school success. (Contains 6 tables.)
