Summit Program
What Do Young Adults with Disabilities (and Parents!) Say about Their High School Preparation for Adult Life?
PRESENTER: Cheryl Thompson, Program Director, MPACT
DESCRIPTION: RAISE and MPACT partnered to ask youth and young adults with disabilities about the preparation they received and its impact on post-secondary outcomes. In this session, we will explore the implications of the data from over 600 self-identified young adults with disabilities and 150 parents in this newly released study. We will discuss the relationship between several forms of transition preparation, postschool outcomes, and life satisfaction.
