Preparing students with disabilities for adult living is a challenge for schools. This book serves as a guide for parents, students, teachers and school administrators to build transition programs at the secondary level to facilitate a successful transition from school to adult living. It is research-based combined with a common-sense approach. In this book Christy Mahanay-Castro explains special education law, and discusses recent research on students with disabilities and their experiences in transitioning from the public schools into adult living. She also includes a practical set of activities and worksheets to assist the special education teacher with facilitating the transition of students with disabilities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Effective transition programs in secondary schools can determine success for students with disabilities. If all schools followed the recommendations set forth by Dr. Mahanay-Castro in this dynamic guide then students with disabilities would flourish in the adult world. -- Ann Wheeler, independent living counselor, Wichita, Kansas
This book is a reminder to believe in students and never underestimate what they can learn. This is essential for the self-concept of all students, but most certainly for students who are receiving special education services. The transition program for special education students is essential to their success as adults. -- Kathy Buswell, Special Education Transition Consultant, Lewiston, Idaho
There was a balance of personal, technical, and applicable information provided in this book. It made me refocus on how I have been doing my job with transition. I am looking forward to revisiting the components of transition to make sure my students areprepared for life after high school. I continue to look for information on transition to better myself as a special education teacher, so the portfolio worksheets will be very helpful. I look forward to incorporating them into my transition process withmy students. The information I gained from this book has helped me refocus and improve on how I will facilitate transitioning for my students, thus, making sure they are prepared and confident to leave high school and enter adulthood with all its responsibilities.. -- Sherry Leitz, teacher, Mullan, Idaho
