This book describes research-based practices and provides strategies for transition of adolescents and young adults who use AAC in a variety of areas, including educational, vocational, and social domains. This book is volume 6 in the ""AAC"" series and provides information on transition issues for professionals who support individuals who use AAC. It covers the entire range of planning for transition in high school through post-secondary education, employment, independent and community living. This book will bring together experts from the fields of special education, transition planning, voc-rehab, communication disorders, and AAC. Each chapter opens with a preface by an AAC user describing his or her personal transition experience. New developments in AAC technology and educational services have changed the long-term expectations of individuals who use AAC and their significant others. Positive outcomes in employment, independent living, and the opportunity for adult social relationships have provided models of what is possible, but to date these benefits have been enjoyed by only a limited number of individuals. This book will help to disseminate not only 'success stories' as a first step towards raising the expectations of those who work with individuals who use AAC.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Uses concrete examples, case studies, and step by step instruction to provide the kind of guidance that transition teams need to tailor their individualized transition planning for students and young adults who use AAC." --Colleen A. Thoma, Ph.D."Director, Doctoral Programs, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Education, Richmond" (01/18/2009)


"Fills an important gap in the literature between school-based services and those provided in the adult community. It provides a wealth of practical information about a wide range of topics vital to service providers and their adolescent clients with complex communication needs." --Kathryn M. Yorkston, Ph.D."Professor and Head Division of Speech Pathology, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle" (01/18/2009)


"A much-needed book addressing individuals too long neglected in the secondary transition literature . . . packed with up-to-date research, lively case examples, and down-to-earth how-to strategies. This is a must-have book." --Carolyn Hughes, Ph.D."Vanderbilt University" (01/18/2009)


"This comprehensive text covers virtually all aspects of the often complex process of transition to adult life for young people who use augmentative and alternative communication. It is an outstanding resource." --Richard Luecking, Ed.D."TransCen, Inc., Rockville, Maryland" (01/18/2009)


"The authors transcend most books focused on this age group by addressing the whole person, and by moving transition planning away from simple compliance and paperwork to the impacts of real-life outcomes." --Cary Griffin & Dave Hammis
