 Full Description: 
Building New Worlds describes the transition process that students with disabilities and their allies are creating to assure that they will be active participants in family and community life upon graduation from high school. The book chronicles the lives of many students as the valued citizens they are becoming in the face of the many limitations they encounter.

In the past, deficiency views of these students would have landed them in highly restrictive adult day programs. However, as a result of focusing on their capacities, finding opportunities in their communities, and changing the adult service options, these students and their families are making their world anew.
