Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to propose an expanded conceptual model, Transition to Community College (TtCC). Based on a review of the literature, the proposed model extends the work of Garrison-Wade and Lehmann as a revised transition framework to be used to guide the development and evaluation of disability policies, practices, and programs. Exemplary changes in the laws, policies, practices, and responsibilities from the secondary to the postsecondary setting are presented. Recommendations for secondary and postsecondary leaders and researchers are offered.
