Abstract

This study investigates the construct of satisfaction as a post-school outcome for students with learning disabilities (LD). More specifically, the effects of postsecondary education or training as well as employment are examined as they contribute to the overall satisfaction of young people with LD, one year after they exit high school. The rationale for this approach is that examining individuals’ with LD satisfaction with their post-school outcomes will take into consideration their perspectives and provide an indication of whether or not they are engaged in post-school activities of their preference and also provides a broader approach to measuring post-school outcomes. Results of this study suggest that both education or training and employment are importantly influential in postsecondary satisfaction among individuals with learning disabilities as they transition from school to post-secondary activities.
