From the Back Cover:

In this comprehensive, practical guide to understanding the varied transition needs of students with disabilities—and the potential options and career paths in transition education—pre- and in-service teachers and professionals get the support they need to develop and implement transition activities and programs. The text organizes transition topics around four essential elements of transition and a backward planning process. In this edition, a new organization and four new chapters improve the focus and readability for the student new to transition.

 

This new Fourth Edition features:

 

A look at assessments for developing self-determined postschool goals, supporting the goals through courses of study and transition services, and implementing IEP goals toward postschool goal refinement and completion in themodel presented for the transition IEP.

 

A framework for backwards and person-centered planning and self-determination presented in the new chapter, “Developing Postschool Goals”.

 

Strategies for IEP goal development presented in a new chapter, “Writing IEP Goals for Transition Teaching”.

 

Better organization of coordinator information by the “Kohler Taxonomy” in the revised chapter, “Transition Coordination”.

 

A new chapter, “Identifying Courses of Study”, which more clearly aligns transition with standards-based curriculum. 

 

A clear look at major ideas, concepts, and strategies through the Critical Points features that provide summaries in line with each major chapter heading.

 

Opportunities for students to see the concepts in action through the text’s diverse case studies and applications that illustrate organizing concepts and provide tips or recommendations for practice.
