Comparisons Across Time of the Outcomes of Youth with Disabilities up to 4 Years After High School: A Report of Findings from the National Longitudinal Transition Study (NLTS) and the National Longitudinal Transition Study-2 (NLTS2)
Shu Jing Yen (ed)
In an effort to document the secondary school experiences and postsecondary outcomes of students with disabilities over the last two decades, the Dept. of Education (ED) sponsored two longitudinal research studies 15 years apart. The first study, the Nat. Longitudinal Transition Study (NLTS) generated nationally representative information about secondary-school-age youth who were receiving special education services in 1985. To assess the status of youth with disabilities in the early 21st century, ED commissioned the Nat. Longitudinal Transition Study-2 (NLTS2) to generate nationally representative information about secondary-school-age youth who were receiving special education services in 2000. Dramatic changes in special education policy and practice also have been noted in the 25 years after the passage of Public Law 94-142, now known as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), including increased access to public education, inclusion in general education classrooms, participation in standardized testing, and high school graduation rates. This report provides a comparison of the post-high school experiences of youth with disabilities in 1990 and in 2005, who had been out of high school up to 4 years. It examines how differences between the two time periods varied across disability categories and demographic groups and, when data are available, how these differences compared with those of youth in the general population. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
