Post School Transition: The Experiences of Students with Disability
The transition from school is an important period. All young people should be supported throughout this time to access options which allow them to meaningfully participate and contribute to our society as adults. Many young people with disability however have extremely poor post school transition experiences.
This report by Children with Disability Australia (CDA) (now Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA) ) is based on the direct experience of young people with disability. It highlights key issues from current research, legislation and consultation with key stakeholders. It concludes with recommendations for improving outcomes and options for post school transition of students with disability.
