Post-school SuccessPost-school Success

The purpose of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (2004) is to ensure that all children with disabilities have available to them a free appropriate public education that emphasizes special education and related services designed to meet their unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment, and independent living. As the OSEP and RSA funded technical assistance and dissemination center focused on improving the postsecondary outcomes of students with disabilities, one of NTAC T's primary charges is to assist state and local agencies' capacity to increase student access to, participation in, and success in (a) rigorous academic coursework and (b) career-related curricula designed to prepare students for postsecondary education and careers.
