Exploring Transition in New Jersey

Exploring Transition in New Jersey: Research into the Experiences of Emerging Adults with IDD & Their Families was a study conducted by The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities between 2014 and 2016 to learn more about the experiences of young adults with disabilities as they leave high school and enter adulthood. With funding from the New Jersey Council on Developmental Disabilities, the study gathered information from available literature, school district representatives, young adults with developmental disabilities and their families to better understand the state of transition in New Jersey.

The Report on Key Findings provides a summary of what was learned from the study in the areas of: transition planning, career preparation and work experience, self-determination and self-advocacy, post-secondary education, independent living, and connection to services and supports.
