Successful Transition Programs Pathways for Students With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

by John McDonnell, Dr. Michael L. Hardman

Successful Transition Programs Pathways for Students With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Synopsis

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.
