The purpose of this study was to determine the amount of communication between guidance counselors and students with disabilities towards a post high school transition plan. Specific objectives addressed included the following: Does the guidance counselor help students and families think about the future and consider what they want to do after high school? Does the guidance counselor help students and families make connections to services they will need after high school? Is the guidance counselor available to students with disabilities? Does the guidance counselor provide vocationally related services to students and their families? This descriptive study surveyed a selective group of high school students between the ages of 16 and 21 who were receiving services from the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. The students voluntarily completed the survey. The data will be used to determine areas of strengths and weaknesses between the students and their guidance counselors in regard to post high school career planning.
