A recent article in the Washington Post highlights the opening of the Center for Transition and Career Innovation for Youth with Disabilities at the University of Maryland’s College of Education (COE). The center, co-directed by COE Professors Ellen S. Fabian and Richard Luecking, will help young people with disabilities transition from an educational setting to entering the workforce.
“We know what it takes to help students with disabilities become successful as adults,” Dr. Luecking said to the Washington Post. “We just don’t know how to apply it universally, to all students, with any disability. The center will be able to understand the circumstances where we could make that happen, across the board.”
Dr. Luecking and Dr. Fabian are professors in COE’s Department of Counseling, Higher Education, and Special Education. Their research focuses on improving practices for facilitating successful career development for individuals with disabilities.
