Summary

In this improved and expanded edition of a classic resource, Paul Wehman and his colleagues take a fresh look at transition, examining the persistent yet unfortunate reality that not working is perhaps the truest definition of having a disability. Specialists in a variety of disciplines can use the creative and practical techniques in this book to ensure careful transition planning, to build young people's confidence and competence in this work skills, and to foster support from businesses and community organizations for training and employment programs. Young people with disabilities need life-skills training before they leave school. Life Beyond the Classroom offers professionals and students indispensable information and effective strategies for ensuring successful, supported transitions.
