Winter Research Summit: Evaluating the Impact of College-based Transition Services for Students with ID
The Winter 2018 Research Summit will focus on evaluating the impact of college-based transition services for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities Caroline E. Parker, Ed.D., Principal Research Scientist, and Rebecca Schillaci, Research Associate, Education Development Center, will present “Self-Determination in the Think College Transition Model: Results from a Quasi-Experimental Study.” Researchers from Education Development Center conducted a study to evaluate the effect of participation in the Think College Transition Model on transition-aged students with intellectual disabilities in MA. The presentation will focus on students’ growth in self-determination.
Maria Paiewonsky, Ed.D., Project Coordinator, Ty Hanson, Postsecondary Ed Specialist, and Odgerel Dashzeveg, doctoral student, all of Think College, will present “Put Yourself on the Map: Exploring Student Perceptions of College Using Drawings and Digital Mapping Strategies.” Staff from the Think College Transition project facilitated research with college students with intellectual disability using students’ own drawings and digital mapping. Together they explored how place and space influence transition services. This presentation will focus on how students portrayed characteristics of self-determination.
