Through case studies and clearly presented content, this book helps readers learn what they can do to assist students with disabilities in achieving positive adult outcomes.

 

Professionals, students of special education and families of students with disabilities will all benefit from this comprehensive introduction to transition services.

 

This book provides a comprehensive and clear introduction to effective transition services for students with disabilities who are leaving the special education system.  The Prologue and Chapter 1 provide an overview of the topic of transition services, and the remaining chapters go into detail about specific aspects of the transition planning process.  The central roles of students with disabilities and their families are emphasized.  Case studies of two individuals, one with mild disabilities and one with severe disabilities, are followed throughout the text to illustrate effective practices, ensuring readers are able to apply the content to students with different types and severity of disabilities, and are able to understand how practices can be tailored to meet individual student needs.  The content is presented so that readers can apply key strategies immediately in their work as teachers or in other professional capacities.  Research Summaries in each chapter address the research basis for effective practices that are discussed throughout the book.  Spotlight on History in most chapters provides a short biography on an individual who made a significant contribution to the development of transition services.  Additional resources and websites are included at the end of each chapter.
