Growing evidence regarding poor transition planning and outcomes for disabled young people has meant that improving transitions to adult services and adulthood for disabled young people is a government priority. Previous research suggests the transitions of disabled young people leaving residential school placements can be even more problematic than the transitions of disabled young people living with their families and attending local schools.

This small scoping project sought to identify:
* differences in practice with regard to transition planning for disabled young people in residential schools compared to young people attending their local special schools,
* the factors which impact on transition planning and transition outcomes for these young people,
* key areas for future research and the feasibility of such work.

    Research areas

  • ill/disabled children, social care services issues, ill/disabled adults
