Parent engagement in school to work transition for their child with disability

21 Apr 2020
This paper has two key objectives: 1. To explore the literature regarding parents’ experience of their child with a disability’s transition from school. 2. To explore the experience of parents involved in Ticket to Work, as well as the experience of the Ticket to Work network members with whom parents engage. Currently, many young Australians with disability are not successfully transitioning from school into further training or employment: an indicator of long-term, often lifelong, disadvantage.
