A policy study initiated in 1996 investigated implementation of the transition mandates of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in nine sites across the United States, Five sites were identified as model sites because they had a national reputation for effective implementation of transition policies and practices, while four were identified as representative sites demonstrating progress in the face of challenges typically associated with local level implementation.
Visits to each site included in-depth interviews, observations, and document reviews.
Following the visits, procedures associated with qualitative inquiry were used to prepare individual summary reports and conduct a cross-case analysis.
Results of the cross-case analysis are presented, including factors supporting and posing challenges to implementation.
