"Stroppy" or "Confident"? Do Carers and Professionals View the Impact of Transition Support on Young People Differently?
Kaehne, Axel; Beyer, Stephen
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v39 n2 p154-160 Jun 2011
The study examined the effects of transition employment support to two cohorts of young people who were in their last year in school or college in 2005/2006 and 2006/2007. This paper reports the views of carers, teachers and support workers of the impact this additional support made to the young people. Analysis of the data reveals a difference between the views of carers and those of professionals. The paper argues that these differences may reflect different understandings of the aim and purpose of transition support and which may make it difficult to achieve a smooth transition for all stakeholders when not taken into account. This may have implications for how to structure and deliver transition support, some of which are being outlined in the discussion.
