 Full Description: 
This textbook explains the transition from school to adult life for persons with disabilities. The following bulleted excerpts taken from the publisher’s description provide a flavor of the book:

“This book provides a comprehensive and clear introduction to effective transition services for students with disabilities who are leaving the special education system.”

“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.”

“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”
