"While secondary educators have improved opportunities for the development of skills necessary for academic success and transition to the next setting, there is a need for practitioner-friendly information on what persons with disabilities need to access postsecondary education and careers as well as how their participation in these areas can improve their outcomes. Kochhar-Bryant, Bassett, and Webb do a fine job in responding to this need."
"A primer for teaching all students with special needs who are moving from the protective environment of our secondary schools to self-reliance, self-advocacy, and independence. This book fills a noticeable gap in our profession’s ability to identify the key elements, strategies, and resources required for successful transition into postsecondary education. Moreover, this book is a lifeline for parents who are asking what’s next, where do we go from here, and who can we go to for services when needed."
"Meets the need for a comprehensive set of strategies for assisting young adults' transition to postsecondary education and work environments. The book is well-written, easy to read, and addresses many facets and avenues for transitioning effectively. A must-have!"
"Today, students with disabilities have more postsecondary options than ever before. They need to make knowledgeable decisions about their futures. This timely resource provides critical guidance educators and families need to help students transition into postsecondary education and careers with purposeful success. The authors offer a powerful storehouse of information and suggestions that fills a longstanding vacuum in our professional resources."
This text has a nice overview of secondary transition in special ed for the mild/moderate population.
I appreciated the emphasis on the mild/moderate population and connections to post-secondary education and options, with particular attention paid to self-determination and self-advocacy.
An excellent resource about successful transition into post-secondary education for students with SEND. I particularly liked Chapter 8; Student Voices and plan to use parts of it with students for discussion.
