For Transition, Secondary Special Education, and Career Education/Vocational Transition courses at the undergraduate and graduate level.


A comprehensive and practical guide to understanding the varied transition needs of students with disabilities—and a look at the potential options and career paths in transition education.


Teachers, and professionals in all areas of transition, get the support they need to develop and implement transition activities and programs for students with disabilities in this comprehensive, practical resource. The authors describe the varied transition needs readers are likely to encounter in their work, and provide a succinct look at the potential options and career paths available.


In this edition, a new organization and four new chapters improve the focus and readability for the student new to transition. The text organizes topics around four essential elements of transition and a backward planning process. Transition planning is now introduced early to anchor subsequent learning.
