dc.description.abstractIn response to the need for data on the post-high school experiences of graduates from special education programs, this follow-up study of the 1983 graduates of a special education program for severely learning disabled students sought the patterns of post-high school employment, and education/training and the status of independent living of the graduates. In order to obtain a profile of the sample population, school records were reviewed. A telephone survey of graduates obtained employment history and experiences, identified types of frequency of education/training sought, and assessed the status of independent living. All data were analyzed descriptively and conclusions and implications identified for future educational programming during the high school years.en
