Planning for Real Life

ISBN: 978-1-895418-89-7


This is a revised edition with information added about Person Centered Planning, and both versions (regular and plain language) can be downloaded as full text documents from the website. Here is a description from the publisher:

"This book is about transition from school to work. It has research that confirms what we all know: that for individuals with disabilities, the close collaboration between families, teachers and students facing 'transition to work' is rare. When done well, it works, but it seldom happens. What is different is that this is a proposal for collaboration without blaming - a good tool for all parties. There are two volumes, a Plain Language Edition and a regular edition. The Plain Language edition was co-edited by authors from People First of Ontario. Both are useful, but for those with second language issues and/or learning difficulties, the Plain Language may be more useful."

Here is the table of contents:

-Whose Ideas and Experiences Inform This Resource Manual?
-Design of this Resource
-A Word About the Student
-How Teachers & Families Approach Transition Planning
-What Does All this Suggest?
-A Parent Transition Workshop Initiative
-Person Centered Planning
