The Role of Transition Services: Raising Expectations for Students with Intellectual Disability

The NCCDD grant initiative “Learning & Earning After High School: The Role of Transition Services in Raising Expectations and Attitudes for Students with Intellectual Disabilities”, examined post-school expectations and attitudes, identified barriers within school districts, and developed a web-based tool for effective secondary transition using videos, teacher training, and access to resources to improve post-school opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities.  This presentation will examine the role of transition services in raising expectations and attitudes for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
