Dr. Cameto has experience designing and managing national longitudinal studies across disability groups and ages. She is co-director of the National Longitudinal Transition Study-2 (NLTS2), a 10-year study following a cohort of youth with disabilities ages 13 to 17, which is documenting their experiences and outcomes as they age.

Dr. Cameto came to SRI to work on the first NLTS, after a policy internship at the U.S. Office of Special Education Programs.
