What are the transition practices of highly effective VR counselors?

Study Description

Among the most critical and overlooked approaches to improving VR outcomes for transitioning youth is improving the skills and strategies of the VR counselors delivering services. VR counselors can perform a critical role in delivering high quality transition services to youth with disabilities both during and after their exit from secondary school. Although several studies highlight the important role VR counselors play in the transition process, the field lacks a comprehensive description of the transition-related skills and practices implemented by highly effective VR counselors.
