"Students With Disabilities: Better Federal Coordination Could Lessen Challenges in the Transition From High School"
Although several federal programs and services are intended to help students with disabilities after they leave high school, those programs aren't coordinated well, making them difficult for students and their families to navigate, a new report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office says.
Services that students can apply for include tutoring, vocational training, and assistive technology. Those come from the federal departments of Education, Labor, and Health and Human Services and the Social Security Administration.
But the different agencies only coordinate their activities to an extent and don't reflect on how effectively they work together, the GAO says.
