Professor Martin's professional interests focus upon the transition of youth with disabilities from high school into postsecondary education and the workforce, and what must be done to facilitate success in high school and postsecondary environments. He has authored 10 books, a couple dozen chapters for edited books, numerous journal articles, several curriculum lesson packages, which include video and multi-media applications, and instructional assessments. He has conducted dozens of presentations and training workshops at sites across the US, Canada, and in Europe. State, federal, and private sources, including the Institute for Education Sciences, have provided him almost 12 million dollars to conduct his research and demonstration activities. The Council for Exceptional Children’s Division on Career Development and Transition awarded Professor Martin the Oliver P. Kolstoe Award for his efforts to improve the quality and access to career and transition services for people with disabilities.
