A Consumer Guide to Transition Planning for Students, Parents and Advocates.
Allen, William T.
This workbook was written to help students, parents, and support staff prepare "transition plans" to help students with disabilities get ready for living in the adult world. (Such transition planning should start four to five years before students leave school.) Written in simple language and short sentences, the workbook contains seven sections. The sections cover the following topics: what the workbook is about, terms everyone should understand, some things to think about, knowing strengths and needs, deciding what to work on, getting ready for the transition plan meeting, and a checklist for the meeting. The workbook asks questions and provides space for students/parents to answer them in order to think about what should be in the transition plan. (KC)
