Are Research-Based Predictors of Postschool Outcomes Evident in College-Based Transition Programs?
In this Data Blitz session at CEC LIVE 2021, Clare Papay and Meg Grigal shared initial results of a study from the Moving Transition Forward project. The transition experiences of youth in CBTS programs are malleable: that is, these are programmatic factors that can be changed or modified by college/university or school district partner staff to support youth to achieve successful postschool outcomes. The findings of this research highlight several ways in which CBTS programs provide strong transition programming. This information can be used by secondary special educators to advocate for greater access to CBTS. The recommendations for practice based on the findings will lead to advancements in transition practices that support increased access to positive employment outcomes and postsecondary outcomes for youth with ID/A.
