Emotional and behavioral disorders; EBD; transition; evidence-based practices
Transition from high school to adulthood is a difficult period of life for all youth, especially those with disabilities. Research indicates students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) experience difficulties in transitioning to a postschool environment. Their postschool outcomes in the areas of education, employment, and community participation continue to concern researchers, practitioners, and families and, therefore, demand improvement. Identification and implementation of transition-related evidence-based practices is essential for teachers who work with students with EBD to increase the likelihood of positive adult outcomes for these students. Discussed in this article are transition-related recommendations and practical strategies that may be used by teachers and other education professionals preparing students with EBD for life after school.
