Functional Curriculum and Students with Mild Intellectual Disability: Exploring Postschool Outcomes through the NLTS2
Bouck, Emily C.; Joshi, Gauri
Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, v47 n2 p139-153 Jun 2012
While students with mild intellectual disability receive less attention in research, their educational programming is still important, including the curriculum they receive in school. This study analyzed the National Longitudinal Transition Study-2 (NLTS2) as to the curriculum students with mild intellectual disability received in high school as well as students' postschool outcomes. Frequency distributions, cross tabulations and logistic regression were utilized to analyze secondary data from the NLTS2. Results indicated few students with mild intellectual disability received a functional curriculum and receipt of a functional curriculum did not influence postschool outcomes. The implications and future directions of these results are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
