All the work of the National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth is research-based. Acting on behalf of the National Center on Secondary Education and Transition and the Collaborative, IEL’s Center for Workforce Development took the lead in collecting and compiling the research for the Guideposts and the corresponding NASET transition standards and indicators. The research summary is a living document and will be updated periodically.
