Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

Most of a sample of special educators indicated that occupational therapists can conduct transition assessments to create postsecondary transition plans for adolescents with disabilities. By addressing occupational performance, vocational interests, sensory processing, and self-determination, occupational therapists can analyze students’ strengths, interests, deficits, coursework, and postsecondary goals for housing, education, training, and employment.
