Topic: Characteristics of Adolescents with Learning Disabilities
Subcategory: Research
Summary: Researchers interviewed 277 young adults with and without LD/EBD about their school and post-dropout experiences and report their findings in regard to characteristic descriptors; dropout profiles; and disability and school history. The authors include implications for practice in the following areas: evaluate policies and procedures regarding dropouts; review the district’s transition-related practices; address attendance issues; consider graduation as only one acceptable outcome; and improve self-understanding.
