 Full Description: 
This book discusses issues important for youth with disabilities as they leave high school and enter into adulthood. Instead of presenting a set of “how tos” for parents and educators it examines the policy that guides the services and instructions youth with disabilities receive. The following passage from the publisher’s description summarizes the book as follows:

“As adolescents with disabilities or chronic health conditions reach adulthood, they face complex challenges related to employment, education, housing, health care, and community participation. Coordinated, well-organized transition services could make all the difference—and this cutting-edge volume gives decision-makers a clear vision to work toward as they reform today's fragmented system.”
