Summary

This issue focuses on assisting adolescents with serious emotional handicaps to make transitions from youth serving systems into society. A framework for developing transition-oriented programs is prevented that incorporates into the specific service goals of the current environment the skills required to function in the projected environment. Summarized next are nine tenets for implementing the transition framework which include the propositions that programs must be individualized and anchored in the next progressive step in the transition effort, that services must begin early and be skill and goal oriented, that programs must be community based and contain a vocational component, and that parents must be involved in the planning and development of services. A case study is provided of the Youth In Transition project at the Rosemont Residential Treatment Center and School, Portland, Oregon, which served 60 girls (ages 13-18) Other sections include: (1) a summary of a study of supported employment for individuals with severe disabilities; (2) descriptions of parent assistance programs to improve service delivery for adolescents and to provide respite services; and (3) requests for assistance in surveying transition programs. Also noted are revisions to a national directory of parent organizations. (VW)
