- post-school transition, vocational enhancement, mild disabilities
Empowering post-school transition is becoming an increasingly important program in strengthening the equality and quality of education for students with disabilities. It is generally acknowledged that adults with disabilities are those with the most limitations not only to education access but also job opportunities. Moreover, they should compete with those of adults in general. Through research, there should be caring agents who are willing to assist their struggle for the better living of this minority of the population. The general objective of this research is to provide larger opportunities for individuals with disabilities, particularly in improving their life skills. To be specific, this research aims at 1) assessing the skilled interest among the students with disabilities, 2) exploring life skill training on the vocational promotion, 3) designing the model of the vocational post-school transition program. This study will take place in specials schools located in five regions of Central Java. Such information is considered important for the research in projecting the students' potentials on the individual bases of development. The result of the assessment is then made use to design the model of post-school transition.
