There are increasing number of post-secondary programs that have become available for individuals with developmental disabilities over the past several years. There is little information known about how the participation in postsecondary education affects their quality of life (QOL). Availability of social network and supports may have a significant impact on QOL and overall successful adult outcomes. Objectives: 1.To examine aspects of quality of life in UC's TAP students using both surveys and individual interviews. 2. To examine how QOL measures are related to individual, environmental, and UC TAP program factors. OBJECTIVES1. Discussion research methods and results. 2. To discuss the conclusion that may give us an understanding of specific environmental and support factors that may predict success in post-secondary education programs that may allow us to develop specific supports for individuals with DD to live independently 2. To gain competitive employment 3. To achieve optimal adult outcomes in the community IMPORTANCE: The results revealed that most important quality of life domains were interpersonal relationships, personal development, and self-determination. This is critical information that has significant implications for the development and modification of existing postsecondary education programs. TRANSLATING TOPIC INTO POSITIVE OUTCOMES: Understanding of specific environmental and support factors that may predict success in post-secondary education programs may allow us to develop specific supports for individuals with DD to live independently, gain competitive employment, and achieve optimal adult outcomes in the community.
