Transition Outcomes: Youth with Emotional and Behavioral Disabilities:
  • 40%-60% dropout of high school (Wagner, 1991; Wehman, 1996; Wagner, Kutash, Duchnowski, & Epstein, 2005)
  • Experience poorer academic performance than students with LD (Lane, Carter, Pierson & Glaeser, 2006)
  • 10%-25% enroll in post-secondary education (compared to 53% of typical population) (Bullis & Cheney, 1999)
  • High rates of unemployment/underemployment post-school (Bullis& Cheney, 1999; Kortering, Hess & Braziel, 1996; Wagner, 1991; Wehman, 1996)
