Project Summary

NSTTAC is a national technical assistance and dissemination center funded by the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) (award #H326J050004). The purpose of NSTTAC is to assist states to build capacity to support and improve transition planning, services, and outcomes for youth with disabilities. To do this, NSTTAC will:

. Assist SEAs and LEAs to collect data on SPP Indicator 13 and use these data to improve transition services. (Indicator 13: Percent of youth aged 16 and above with an IEP that includes coordinated, measurable, annual IEP goals and transition services that will reasonably enable the child to meet the post-secondary goals. [20 U. S. C. 1416 (a) (3) (B)])

. Generate knowledge that provides a foundation for states to improve transition services that enhance post-school outcomes

. Build capacity of states and local educational agencies to implement effective transition education and services that improve post-school outcomes

. Disseminate information to state personnel, practitioners, researchers, parents, and students regarding effective transition education and services that improve post-school outcomes
