Through this project, we have identified the following: 1. Students with disabilities and/or special health care needs are disproportionally under-represented secondary institutions; 2. Making the transition from secondary to post secondary institutions requires self determination and advocacy; 3. Although there are other programs with this transition, few focus on both educational and medical transitions for students with disabilities and ore special health care needs.
