The National Technical Assistance Center on Transition (NTACT) expanded their case study collection to have a representation of gender, ages, and disability categories. You may have to set up a free account to see the case studies. Earlier versions of Allison, Lilly and Lissette were used in a Secondary Transition Webinar Series at the NH Institute on Disability – go there to see where the case study information was added to New Hampshire’s IEP system, NHEIS.

Several of the case studies contain examples and non-examples of measurable postsecondary goals and annual goals.
