KU Transition to Postsecondary Education for Youth with Intellectual Disabilities

KU Transition to Postsecondary Education for Youth with Intellectual Disabilitiess

The KU Transition to Postsecondary Education for Youth with Intellectual Disabilities (KU-TPE) model demonstration program is designed to give students with ID (intellectual disability) the opportunity to experience an inclusive post-secondary education program that involves participating in all campus academic and student life activities. KU-TPE will ensure that students with ID experience high quality and fully inclusive work-based learning for successful inclusive employment outcomes. The program will extend existing KU student educational support programs to include youth with ID, rather than creating new programs only for youth with ID.
