Notes

Abstract: Paulo Freire (1970) contends “one of the gravest obstacles to the achievement of liberation is that oppressive reality absorbs those within it and thereby acts to submerge human beings’ consciousness” (p. 51). As we sought to appreciate the major life transition beyond high school of Francine, a young woman diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome (AS), we discovered Freire’s contention all-too-often resonates through her story. In this study we sought better to understand to what extent the Individual Education Plan (IEP), a written document developed for students with disabilities eligible for special education services, adequately prepared one girl for major life transitions following high-school graduation.
