Paper Title
A Study on Transition Success Behaviors for Secondary Students with Disabilities in Taiwan

The transition of individuals with disabilities for postschool lives has been addressed for decades. However, the transition is still a critical issue for individuals with disabilities. To find transition success factors, the author had identified 12 transition success indicators from 44 evidence-based kinds of literature to develop a Transition Success Assessment tool, including desires, goals, strengths, limits, disability awareness, persistence, supports, coping, social skills, proactive, making choices, and transition education. The purpose of this study is to understand the current transition behaviors for Taiwan high school students with disabilities. A total of 330 questionnaires has been completed. The results indicated the average scores of the transition success assessment was 99.61(60.74%, SD= 24.49). In addition, most students ranked higher scores on “social skills,” “desires,” “persistence,” and lowest on “limitations,” “transition education,” and “disability awareness.” The implication of results will be further discussed.
