STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES AND READINESS FOR COLLEGE AND CAREERS: 101 DOCUMENTS
As the OSEP funded technical assistance and dissemination center on secondary transition for students with disabilities, NSTTAC is aware that secondary transition is multi-faceted and occurs within the complex systems of high schools, communities, and the education system as a whole. Cognizant of the various mandated and suggested initiatives in our nation's current education system, NSTTAC's staff developed documents around four topics relevant to secondary education and students with disabilities.
The documents are intended to serve our primary stakeholders, State Education Agency staff and those they serve in communities and local school districts. These resources were developed as entry level guidance ("101"), intended to synthesize the research, policy, and discussion on topics pertinent to secondary special educators. The topics are each related to secondary students with disabilities accessing and succeeding in the high school curriculum to be prepared for their adult lives. Each are also topics on which other organizations and centers (e.g., IDEA Partnership, National High School Center, National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials, National Center on Response to Intervention) have published resources (which are referenced and linked to in these). The purpose of these products is to put those resources in one place and extend or target these discussions to providers of professional development and services in secondary education for students with disabilities.
