NLTS2 Data Brief: Social Activities of Youth with Disabilities
- Mary Wagner, Tom W Cadwallader, Nicolle Garza, Renée Cameto
A brief highlighting the results of the National Longitudinal Study-2 in regard to social activities of youth with disabilities. Researchers asked parents how often youth interact with friends by getting together outside of school, receiving telephone calls from them, and being invited to other youths' social activities. They also asked whether youth had taken part in various extracurricular activities during the previous year.
Produced by the Institute's National Center on Secondary Education and Transition (NCSET) in collaboration with the National Longitudinal Transition Study-2 (NLTS2). NLTS2 provides the first national picture of the involvement of families in the educational development of their secondary-school-age children with disabilities.
