Six years after high school, students with disabilities are less likely to have gone on to postsecondary schools than their classmates without disabilities and less likely to be financially independent, but a little more likely to have children, according to a new report from the National Center for Special Education Research.
The report found that 55 percent of young people with disabilities reported having continued on to postsecondary school since leaving high school, compared with 62 percent of their peers in the general population.
Also, as might be expected, young adults with disabilities who had finished high school were three times as likely to have enrolled in a school after high school than those who didn’t—59 percent vs. 17 percent.
