Post-school quality of life (short summary)

This paper reports the results of surveys and interviews about the experiences of young people with complex communication needs after they leave school. The eight young people in this study all used an AAC device whilst in school, however, only one continued to do so after leaving school. Overall, the young people were found to be out of employment or education, to lack personal resources and to require better access to communication support services. These results indicate the urgent need for high-quality support for young people with developmental disabilities who have left school, especially with regard to communication.
