Activities of students with significant disabilities receiving services in postsecondary settings

Activities of students with significant disabilities receiving services in postsecondary settings

Teachers in 11 public school systems serving students with significant disabilities ages 18-21 in 13 postsecondary settings were surveyed to collect information on students' access to college courses, employment training, activities in the community and on college campuses, and interagency linkages with adult services. In addition, teachers provided input on inclusion and follow-up activities. Results indicated that while students with significant disabilities were successfully engaged in employment training, access to college courses and extracurricular activities was limited. Interagency linkages between school personnel and adult service providers were evident in all sites and were a strength of this service delivery. Few teachers conducted follow-up studies to document outcomes for students with disabilities who had exited the school system. Implications for practice and research are discussed.
