Transitional Study

Transitions Study is currently in its fourth year of a ten-year longitidunal study that follows the progress of over 200 persons with learning disabilities who have graduated from Ontario post-secondary institutions and are moving into the workforce and/or further studies.

Based on four years of pilot expertise and extensive research findings, the landscape for persons with learning disabilities has favorably changed. In Ontario, colleges and universities routinely accommodate, educate and graduate large and increasing numbers of students with learning disabilities. Transitions participants are generally graduating, working, living and thriving as successfully as the general population of a similar age and education, provided that their elementary and secondary years were properly supported, their transitions into post-secondary education was appropriately facilitated with supports, and the students choose to use them.
