This December 2010 report is the Country Report for the United States, written to capture our status at the moment regarding Pathways for Disabled Students to Tertiary Education and Employment. The title’s a mouthful, but the content is a gold mine. It’s precise and authoritative about the U.S. policies and laws in…well…look at the title again! The report was written through the teaming of multiple federal agencies. Inside you’ll find a terrific summary of how federal laws define “disability” differently for children and for adults; a statistical comparison of students with disabilities and the general student population; policies and laws relevant to students in transition; financing; parental involvement in transition planning; and available training for transition personnel and parents of transitioning students with disabilities.
