Kaehne, Axel; Beyer, Stephen
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v37 n2 p138-144 Jun 2009
The paper reports the findings of a study of professionals in strategic and operational positions who were involved in transition planning for young people with learning disabilities. Respondents were asked to comment on what they regarded as the optimal aim and outcome of transition from school to post-school placements. The results illustrate the problems and advantages of inter-agency partnerships in delivering meaningful post-school destinations for young people leaving school.
