Transition-age students with low-incidence disabilities comprise 3 of the fastest growing disability categories (autism, traumatic brain injury, and other health impairments) and 2 of the fastest growing age categories (age 12-17 and 18-21). This dramatic growth will require substantial increases in the number of transition personnel able to address the needs of a population that continues to lack access to vocational services, postsecondary education, and transition services. The proposed project will address these needs by developing a transition endorsement program focused on the needs of students with low-incidence disabilities from high-need urban and rural areas. This program will provide an 18-semester-credit-hour, transition-to-work endorsement program to 24 part-time and 16 full-time graduate students who will also attain a Master¦s degree in transition. Trainees will complete a minimum of 2 career and technical education courses, 2 transition courses, 1 rehabilitation course, and a practicum as part of their interdisciplinary training. To apply direct service skills, trainees will develop and direct a 6-week Kent State University campus experience for high school students with low-incidence disabilities; this campus experience will include job tryouts, participation in classes, community activities, residential living, and collaboration with families. Trainee training will culminate with their development of interagency teams at schools that focus on the development of transition programs, community experiences, and post-18 programs for students with low-incidence disabilities. Training will be provided statewide and regionally through Kent State networks and distance learning.
