As community-based instruction has been recognized as a variable leading to postschool success for all students with disabilities, early transition planning has become vital in students' preparation for adulthood. Based upon the need and importance of students receiving community-based instruction, this literature review examined 23 transition intervention studies to identify vocational, community, daily living, and recreation skills taught across grade levels using CBI. The majority of studies included in the review showed positive results for all participants while more than half of the studies were conducted at the high school level. In addition, findings indicated mixed generalization and maintenance results. These findings suggest the need for practitioners to use evidence-based strategies in the community across grade levels.
