I used this document as a resource for my dissertation. It was helpful in terms of structuring and organizing the overall process of Transition as it relates to Special Needs Students into the adult world. In addition, it identifies the most recent legislation that governs the transition process and identifies roles and responsibilities of state and local agencies. Individuals reading this book can rely on it as a resource when designing an effective Transition plan for special needs youth and refer back to it during the process. Although written globally, individuals can research the links provided within their own communities. Finally, a document that provides one shot look at "Transition".
