A transcript of a Capacity Building Institute (CBI) that provided researchers, state transition coordinators, educators, families, and other interested stakeholders with information on research results and interventions that improve outcomes for secondary youth with disabilities. The morning of this day-long institute focused on findings of the National Longitudinal Transition Study-2 as well as perspectives of youth about what works in helping them succeed. The afternoon sessions—small-group facilitated discussions—provided participants opportunities to learn from and interact with researchers who shared their knowledge regarding how the key areas of schooling, career preparation, youth development/youth leadership, family involvement, and connecting activities can improve outcomes for secondary youth with disabilities. This institute preceded the Division on Career Development and Transition (DCDT) Conference, October 20-22, Albuquerque Convention Center. It was hosted by DCDT (of the Council for Exceptional Children) and NCSET.
