Learning in Individualized Vocational Environments (LIVE) & Self-Determination Skills Project
Dr. Flanagan’s research centers around students between the ages of 16-21 who exhibit moderate to profound levels of intellectual disability. Moreover, she is interested in students who are unable to participate in stage placements, because they lack the required communication and independence skills. By monitoring these students under the conditions of a simulated vocational experience, Flanagan’s research objective is to attain information that will help teachers prepare their students for smoother transitions between school and community-living.
