Summary

For undergraduate and graduate courses in Introduction to Transitions.

Written to show the "how" or methods for successful transitions, this comprehensive text instructs future teachers how to prepare students with disabilities for quality lives as adults through evidence-based best practices and skills that promote self-determination skills. The text explores the historical foundations and legal requirements for providing transition services, but also offers practical, hands-on information about how to provide quality transition services to students.

  • Methods focus-Goes beyond "introductory" level to provide evidence-based strategies for implementing the techniques presented.
