Transition Services in Special Education: A Practical Approach provides future teachers with a comprehensive and practical guide to helping their students as they prepare to leave the world of special education. This resource includes coverage of procedures, laws, organizations, forms, legal requirements, school and parent responsibilities, state and government agencies, and anything else needed to help ease them through this challenging and often confusing process.

Key Features

  • A helpful timeline follows the transition process from beginning (age 13) through 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.
  • Includes specific details on the transition services available for a wide range of students with disabilities—for those students moving on to work experience and those going on to post-secondary education.
  • Addresses personal transition issues encountered by all students with disabilities throughout their adolescence and young adult life, i.e. social interactions, dating, and sexuality. These factors are crucial to the student's ability to make the best transition into adulthood.
  • Practical guidelines and checklists to help teachers assist students who plan to go to college or onto community employment.
