Help students with disabilities put their goals into action and navigate postsecondary life!

As mandated by federal law, schools must assist students with disabilities in developing appropriate goals and transition plans for life after high school. Written for teachers and student assistance professionals, this comprehensive and practical book focuses on how the planning process can prepare students for the greater independence of postsecondary settings.

Recognizing that students with disabilities have a wide range of needs, this resource discusses the transition requirements of various postsecondary options, including colleges, universities, career and technical training programs, and employment. Developed by highly regarded experts, this authoritative guide includes:

  • The most up-to-date information on key legislation that affects transition services and the rights and responsibilities of students and professionals
  • Advice for helping students document disabilities, develop self-advocacy skills, and seek accommodations
  • Information about postsecondary resources on campus and in the community
  • Students' personal stories and a look at the role of family involvement
  • An overview of transition considerations for middle school youth

With user-friendly tools such as checklists, case studies, and reflective questions to support the creation of transition plans, educators can help students successfully explore and pursue educational opportunities after high school.
