Technology and Transition: Tools for Success

This article describes a model, funded by the U.S. Department of Education in 1996 as a three-year demonstration, for providing assistive computer technology services to students with disabilities in support of their transition to postsecondary education and employment.  An occupational therapist evaluates and trains students and works with school personnel to facilitate the coordination of student, family, school personnel, employers, and adult service providers.
