Survey for State Directors
A National Study of Transition Policies and Practices in State Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies
The purpose of this study is to provide the Rehabilitation Services Administration, U. S. Department of Education, with a descriptive national picture of policies and practices among State Vocational Rehabilitation agencies as they affect transition-age youth.
The following survey is one part of this study and will support it by identifying current policies and resources at the state level that support transition services and promising state and local practices. This survey will also identify barriers that may prevent quality transition practices.
