This study identifies effective ways families and schools can support transition to independent living for youth with disabilities. We have developed a model for understanding the role of different factors and their effect on postsecondary living status by using nationally representative data from the NLTS2. . The audience participants will learn about: 1) Which individual, family, and school factors have the most effect on independent living 2) How to tailor person-centered programs according to individual and contextual factors. 2) The effect of incidence of disability and functional mental skills on contextual factors.
