Limited Capacity seats available

Successful transition outcomes for youth with disabilities necessitate collaboration within and beyond the school system. Ideally, this collaboration entails a wide range of professionals across school systems, service systems, and communities coming together to contribute to transition planning, services, and supports as part of a "transition network." This session highlights findings from a mixed-methods study of 509 middle and high school special educators including (a) the characteristics of "transition networks," (b) what factors are associated with network size, and (c) educators' perspectives and experiences related to their transition networks. These findings have important implications for special educators, school administrators, and district staff.
