Educational Outcomes for Secondary Students with Mild Intellectual Disability
Bouck, Emily C.
Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, v52 n4 p369-382 Dec 2017
Attention to the educational programming of secondary students with mild intellectual disability has declined in recent decades, although the need for the attention has not, particularly when considering the postschool outcomes of this population. This paper discusses the current state postschool outcomes and secondary education services for students with mild intellectual disability. It then provides a proposed vision for the educational programming of secondary students with mild intellectual disability to improve those postschool outcomes.
