Abstract
  • Introduction: •Transitioning from high school to post-secondary education, employment, or other opportunity is especially difficult for individuals with an intellectual and/or developmental disability (IDD). •Research has shown that transition-planning should be student-centered, meaning empowering the student to participate and share his/her emotions, opinions, and perspective. •Federal legislation states that transition services must be “based on the individual child’s needs, taking into account the child’s strengths, preferences, and interests.” •There is little research that seeks to gain the student’s perspective on transition. Research question: From the student's perspective, how can transition planning be more student-centered?
