The Future Is around the Corner! A Parent Handbook for Successful Transition.
This handbook for parents describes the transition planning process for youth with disabilities. The handbook is divided into four sections: an overview of the who, what, where, when, why, and how of transition; consideration and evaluation of future options for the young person; home, school, and community activities that can be immediately implemented; and forms to help guide the transition planning process. The overview focuses on what the child is able to do now, what the child's goals are, what the child needs to achieve those goals, and who serves on the transition team. The options section considers employment options, living arrangements, personal management, socialization, leisure and community participation, further education, transportation, self-advocacy, medical, financial, legal, and insurance issues. Suggestions are offered for home and school activities that can prepare children for adult life. Forms include an adult services referral and contact list, and a parent input form for transition training. (DB)
