A Literature Map of Dropout Prevention Interventions for Students with Disabilities

Organization: National Dropout Prevention Center for Students with Disabilities

This resource presents a synthesis of 19 studies examining the effects of interventions intended to reduce dropout rate in secondary students. In order to be included in the synthesis, a study had to include students with disabilities in its sample groups and report outcomes for these students. The authors describe the interventions, outcomes, sample characteristics, and methodological characteristics for each study included in the synthesis. Recommendations for practice, future research, and policy are discussed.
