Looking Ahead

This report provides a comparison of the post-high school experiences of youth with disabilities in 1990 and in 2005, who had been out of high school up to 4 years. It examines how differences between the two time periods varied across disability categories and demographic groups and, when data are available, how these differences compared with those of youth in the general population. Although the Wave 2 data collected in 1990 of NLTS was the final wave of data collection for that study, NLTS2 will continue to follow the lives of youth with disabilities as they age, which will provide information to examine how post-high school outcomes might evolve over time.
