Effective Practices and Predictors in Transition (Lesson Plan Starters) (NTACT)


NTACT (National Technical Assistance Center on Transition) is charged with assisting stakeholders in implementing evidence-based and promising practices and predictors that promote positive post-school outcomes for all students with disabilities. Throughout the website and other resources from NTACT, effective practices and predictors have been evaluated regarding the amount, type, and quality of the research conducted, and are labeled as either (a) evidence-based, (b) research-based, or (c) promising. 

NTACT has developed Practice Descriptions and Lesson Plan Starters for many of the Effective Practices and Predictors. Additionally, NTACT will link users to outside sources, such as the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Evidence-Based Practices for Vocational Rehabilitation (RRTC on EBPs for VR) for more detailed explanations of practices identified through other sources. In each of the Effective Practice Descriptors, the evidence for the practice will be indicated.

Note: The Lesson Plan Starters are embedded in the Practices.
