Summary

Transition Services in Special Education: A Practical Approach provides future Special Education teachers with a comprehensive and practical guide to helping their students as they prepare to leave the world of special education, including procedures, laws, school responsibilities, organizations, forms, legal requirements, parents' responsibilities, and state and government agencies.

Features :

  • Conveniently organized in a clear and concrete "timeline" approach for practical reference, which allows teachers to identify the transition phase their students fall into, then go directly to the particular chapters relevant to that child.
  • Chapter 1 follows the transition process from the beginning of the special education process to transition into adult life and post-high school experiences.
  • Instructs future special educators on the practical problems that face students with disabilities once they have the left the school system, rather than simply including information on school-based responsibilities and options in the transition process, as the majority of other texts do.
  • Includes specific details on the transition services available for a wide range of students with disabilities--for those students moving on to work experience or post-secondary education.
  • Addresses important personal transition issues encountered by all students with disabilities throughout their adolescence and young adult life, such as social interactions, dating, and sexuality. These factors are crucial to the student's ability to make the best transition into adulthood.
  • Provides step-by-step explanations of the expectations and requirements as students with disabilities progress through the transition process and presents a variety of topics and procedures necessary for a realistic awareness of the issues faced during the transitional process.
  • Practical guidelines and checklists help teachers assist students who plan to go to college or onto community employment.
  • Provides teachers with a thorough explanation of the most recent laws governing transitional services.
  • Contains an in-depth explanation of the school's responsibilities in the transition process.
  • Describes the organizations and community agencies that offer help in the transition process.
  • Gives step-by-step explanations of the responsibilities and requirements involved in the transitional IEP throughout the text.
