EDUC 0574 - Career Education and Transition for Students with Disabilities

Credits: 3

P.L. 98-199 and MA Ch. 688 mandate appropriate transitional planning for adolescents having significant special needs as they prepare to move from educational systems to the adult service systems. This has been a particular concern to parents of developmentally disabled adolescents and youth. Inclusion in the established educational process (as mandated by P.L. 94-142) of additional professionals from vocational rehabilitation, counseling, social work and related areas will be studied. Specific focus will be placed on state-of-the-art approaches to transition and its impact upon curriculum.
