Using side-by-side frameworks, it explains the connections between transition services and standards-based education, as well as the connections between IDEA 2004 and the No Child Left Behind Act.  The book provides an introduction to the new Summary of Performance (SOP) that is required by every school district for all youth with disabilities who have IEPs, and will present a first of its kind template for a nationally ratified SOP available to state and local educational agencies.

How transition services and post-secondary goals serve as a unifying framework for individualized education planning (IEPs).

This book is for all who work with special needs students in secondary schools and those preparing youth for transition to post-secondary education and employment, including special and general education teachers, school and guidance counselors, transition coordinators, administrators and many others.
