About this institute . . .
On October 19, 2005, the Division of Career Development and Transition (DCDT) of the Council for Exceptional Children and the National Center on Secondary Education and Transition (NCSET) co-sponsored a Capacity Building Institute on Research-Based Tools and Strategies for Improving Outcomes for Secondary Youth with Disabilities to present some of the latest developments in the field of secondary education and transition. The day included reflective dialogue around:
- Findings/outcomes of the National Longitudinal Transition Study;
- Youth perspectives on how to achieve successful outcomes;
- Research results and practical interventions that improve outcomes for secondary youth with disabilities around the key areas of schooling, career preparatory experiences, youth development/youth leadership, family involvement, and connecting activities; and
- Employer perspectives on how to achieve successful outcomes.
Our intention for the workshop was to provide participants with practical, useful information that had meaningful application to their daily work.
In the following proceedings you will find the Institute agenda, a summary of the Institute, and biographical information about the presenters.
David R. Johnson, Director
