Perceptions and Expectations of Youth With Disabilities - This report provides a picture of the self-representations and expectations of youth with disabilities, how they differ across disability categories and demographic groups and how they compare with youth in the general population. The report presents findings drawn primarily from interviews or surveys from youth ages 15 through 19. The report addresses questions such as how youth with disabilities describe their feelings about themselves and their lives, their secondary school experiences, their personal relationships and their expectations for the future.
