Successful Transition Programs Pathways for Students With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities by John McDonnell, Dr. Michael L. Hardman

Transitions for Students with Severe Disabilities presents transition programs for students with moderate and severe disabilities from school to community life. Taking the position that the most effective transition programs are those that cumulatively build on the capacity of students for employment, community living, and citizenship, the authors address the full range of curricular and instructional issues that face professionals working in primary school, secondary school, and post-A level programmes.


Successful Transition Programs provides an excellent resource for new and practicing professionals. Both the cutting-edge content and user-friendly format make this book appealing to preservice and unservice teachers and other practitioners involved in transition planning and services. It is my choice as the text for my university transition course. -- Pat Rogan, PhD * Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities June 2010 * McDonnell and Hardman-along with their collaborating authors-have crafted an informative, comprehensive, and accessible textbook written to equip new and practicing professionals with the knowledge, skills, expectations, and strategies to effectively support youth and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities transition to life after high school. Overall, the book is well organized and cohesively written. Recognizing the numerous tensions inherent within transition programming, the authors embed point/counterpoint discussions and vignettes, challenging readers to think more deeply about complex and emerging issues. -- Erik W. Carter and Beth Swedeen
