Help students with disabilities transition successfully into adult life!

Assisting students with disabilities in planning for their future as adults offers both challenges and unique opportunities for educators. An authoritative guidebook for Individualized Education Program (IEP) and Individualized Transition Planning teams, Assess for Success, Second Edition, helps students, special educators, and families define appropriate goals—including postsecondary education and employment choices—for the transition to adult life.

New resources in the revised edition emphasize practical transition assessment techniques with sample forms for community assessment, job analysis, and vocational training analysis. Written by a team of highly respected authors, and aligned with the reauthorization of IDEA 2004, the text discusses self-determination and career development, and demonstrates how to:

  • Utilize methods for transition assessment
  • Use assessment outcomes in IEP development
  • Collaborate effectively with team members and other participants
  • Match students to appropriate transition environments

Students with disabilities can successfully transition into adult life when they are supported by solid planning, realistic goals, and a team of caring individuals who want to ensure the best possible outcome.
