A newly announced CERIC-funded research project aims to positively influence the practice of career educators by enabling them to work better with post-secondary students with disabilities in assisting them through their career transitions. Led by the National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS), the project seeks to determine the unique barriers and career transition issues for students with disabilities. It will also identify existing innovative career education practices and what professional development resources would allow career educators to maximize the impact of their interventions with this underserved population.
