A Secondary Analysis of the National Longitudinal Transition Study 2: Examining the Relationships between Expectations, Access, and Postsecondary Life Engagement.

This research provides a secondary analysis of data from the National Longitudinal Transition Study, which documents the experiences of a national sample of students who were 13 to 16 years of age in 2000 as they move from secondary school into adult roles. NLTS examines students' high school coursework, extracurricular activities, academic performance, postsecondary education and training, employment, independent living, and community participation.

Results from this analysis will be used by researchers and teachers who design and implement transition education for youth with disabilities as they move from high school into adulthood.
