Abstract Details for Postsecondary Education and Training Preparation Toolkit.

Welcome to the National Technical Assistance Center on Transition’s (NTACT) Postsecondary Education and Training Preparation Toolkit. The National Technical Assistance Center on Transition (NTACT) assists State and Local Education Agencies, State Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies, and local vocational rehabilitation offices in implementing programs and practices that increase the percentage of students with disabilities (a) accessing and succeeding in rigorous academic coursework and (b) accessing and succeeding in career-related curricula designed to prepare them for success in postsecondary education. To this end, the Postsecondary Education and Training (PSET) Preparation Toolkit is a compilation of procedural guidance and research regarding effective practices in this area. The toolkit explains the array of PSET options for young adults with disabilities after they complete high school. Just as there is a wide range of skills and needs demonstrated by individuals with disabilities, there is an array of opportunities, services, and programs. This toolkit is a resource for any student with a disability, family member, service provider, or educator • Section I: Rationale • Section II: What is Postsecondary Education and Training? • Section III: What Skills Do Students Need to Succeed? • Section IV: How Can Students With Disabilities Plan to Access PSET? • Section V: What Effective Practices and Strategies Exist to Prepare Students? • Section VI: What Can Be Done to Increase the Likelihood of Success Once Enrolled? • Section VII: What Additional Resources are There to Help Students with Disabilities Prepare for PSET?
