Description

A report summarizing the results of the FAST Family Support Survey, a 2010 national Internet survey of 2,416 parents or relatives of children and youth ages 11 years to 39 years with disabilities from 54 states or U.S. territories. The survey was conducted as part of the Family Advocacy and Support (FAST) project at PACER Center, a project designed to develop and test resources to assist families of youth and young adults with disabilities through the transition from school to adult life. Its curriculum development and training components focused specifically on people who were ethnically and socioeconomically diverse. This report describes key information needs, unmet service needs, and service quality for youth and young adults with disabilities in transition from school to adulthood (defined for this effort as ages 12 to 22 years).
