Roads Ahead Study for Education Professionals

Logo- mountains with road and "Responsibilities of Adulthood"We are recruiting high school personnel (general and special educators, therapists, administrators) to participate in a study conducted by Boston University researchers. Researchers at the University of Maine are assisting in this study. Data will be collected and analyzed by Boston University. University of Maine researchers will only receive data summaries that do not include individual identifiers.

This research is funded by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) which is part of the Department of Education. We want to better understand the strategies and programs that schools use to support high school students with autism who are accessing the general education curriculum and planning to graduate with a regular high school diploma.
