Abstract

Although rehabilitation counselors potentially play a vital role in the transition process, available data suggest that their participation has been limited. Based upon responses to two surveys, this study examined how and to what extent rehabilitation counselors participate in the transition process. One survey was sent to a sample of special educators, the other to a sample of rehabilitation counselors. The findings suggest that the role rehabilitation counselors serve is inadequate, exacerbated by the finding that many counselors are not being invited to transition planning meetings by school personnel, parents, or teachers. The implications of the findings are discussed, and recommendations for promoting better collaboration are suggested. © 2002, Sage Publications. All rights reserved.
