Are Research-Based Predictors of Postschool Outcomes Evident in College-Based Transition Programs?
In November 2021, Think College staff (Meg Grigal and Clare Papay) presented at the State of the Art conference on recent research conducted on college-based transition services (CBTS). College-based transition services (CBTS) are an emerging model for youth with ID ages 18 to 22. This research study used the largest available national dataset (TPSID) to explore the transition experiences of youth with intellectual disability and/or autism who attend CBTS programs. Comparisons between CBTS program components and the research-based and promising predictors for transition identified by NTACT are made, to determine the extent to which CBTS programs reflect use of evidence-based practices.
