As adolescents with disabilities or chronic health conditions reach adulthood, they face complex challenges related to employment, education, housing, health care, and community participation. Coordinated, well-organized transition services could make all the difference--and this cutting-edge volume gives decision-makers a clear vision to work toward as they reform today's fragmented system. Research scientist Donald Lollar gathers the best, most current thinking on transition from a multidisciplinary team of experts. Together, they make research-based recommendations that will streamline access to services, meet young people's individual needs, and improve long-term outcomes. Readers will discover which kinds of policy changes and program initiatives could help adolescents with a range of disabilities. Readers will get valuable insight on improving the various systems with fragmented and uncoordinated programs--health, education, labor, housing, transportation. And because chapters are coauthored by experts on adolescents and experts on adult disability, readers will have a balanced, cohesive perspective that will help them improve both sides of transition. With this map for program and policy change close at hand, program developers will take confident steps toward their ultimate goal: a seamlessly integrated transition system that helps young adults with disabilities lead successful, self-determined adult lives.
