Issues in Transition. Volume Two.
McNair, Jeff, Ed.; Legutki, Gregg, Ed.
Six papers address issues in the transition of students with disabilities into the adult world of work. The first paper by Richard Ashcroft and titled "Attachment and Transition for Troubled Youth," reviews the literature on attachment, transition, social skills, and troubled youth and school, and offers a transition strategy which focuses on increasing school attachment and social bonding. The second paper titled, "The Local Church as an Agent of Natural Supports to Individuals with Developmental Disabilities" by Jeff McNair, considers involvement of local churches in providing transition supports to this population, including rules for participation, areas in which the church can provide assistance, and the church as an agent in softening social environments. Next, Joseph O. Turpin, in "Holistic Approach to Transitioning," uses a holistic approach to consider the interaction of factors of personal change, traits of the individual/family, and traits of the environment. The fourth paper, "Job Coach Site Visit Card" by Jeff McNair and others, describes a card used to both assist agencies in collecting information on supported employment programs and to help job coaches monitor their own performance in the provision of support. The next paper, by Joseph L. English, is titled "An Update on the Carl D. Perkins Legislation" with emphasis on the development of quality special focus programs. The final paper "Transition Follow Up" by Carolee A. Monroe examines follow-up of both educational programs and students with severe disabilities. Individual papers contain references. (DB)
