Summary or Abstract : Going to college continues to be seen as a primary means of attaining higher job status and better income. In a competitive labor market, access to postsecondary education has become essential for individuals with disabilities. However, youth with disabilities are still half as likely to attend any type of postsecondary school as same-age youth without disabilities. Ensuring access and participation in postsecondary education for students with disabilities has become one of the central challenges of successful transition from high school. Research conducted on e-mentoring with students with disabilities is nearly non-existent, however research on traditional mentoring with adolescents with learning disabilities, although sparse, is promising. This study investigated the impact of an e-mentoring program on students with learning disabilities on their ability to identify post-school interests and goals and the steps necessary to achieve them. One hundred twelve students from eight local high schools participating in this program were randomly assigned into one of two groups: control or intervention. All participating students were invited to attend two college campus visits hosted by the mentors. In addition to participating in the college visits, students in the intervention group were matched with a college mentor. These paired secondary students corresponded with their college mentor via an innovative password-secure website that contained individual virtual classrooms complete with online transition-related discussions, including decision-making, problem-solving, time-management, and self-advocacy topics. The primary purpose of the proposed exploratory study was to determine the extent to which an e-mentoring program incorporating research supported components improves the ability of students with disabilities to identify postschool career interests and goals and the steps necessary to achieve them. Student outcomes on transition competency, self-determination and connectedness were examined..
