    Abstract: To gauge progress in addressing the needs of youth with 
disabilities, the U.S. Department of Education is sponsoring a five-
year longitudinal study focused on the educational and transitional 
experiences of youth between the ages of 13 and 21 in December 2011. 
The study focuses on three sets of research questions: What are the 
characteristics of youth with disabilities? What services and 
accommodations do they receive and what are their courses of study? 
What are their transitional experiences as they leave high school and 
their educational, social, and economic outcomes? To shed light on the 
distinctive experiences of youth with disabilities the study will 
contrast them with those of youth without disabilities. The study we 
also compare the experiences of youth with disabilities with those of 
two previous cohorts of youth with similar disabilities, providing 
information on progress in addressing the needs of these youth. 
Districts and youth will be randomly selected to ensure that they are 
nationally representative. The study sample will include approximately 
300 school districts and 15,000 students. Phase I data collection will 
occur in spring 2012 and spring 2014, when sample members will be ages 
13-21 and 15-23, respectively. The study will collect data from 
parents, youth, principal teachers, and student school records.
