Promising Practices in Transition for Predominantly Minority Youth: Results of Multi-Year, Multi-Site Studies

Attended this webinar this morning (at 3.00am) Presented by Dr. Ellen Fabian, Dr. Paul Gold & Dr. Richard Luecking. The informational webinar discussed the results of a multi-year, multi-site study of personal and contextual factors contributing to employment for predominantly minority youth with high incidence disabilities. The researchers elaborated on the essential elements (what and why) of successful transition programs and interventions derived from the study and discussed strategies for replication and innovation of promising practices and interventions.

Quite an informative study, but what was important was that they highlighted significant areas that are crying out for research to provide more evidence to inform practice.
