Transition from School to Life: A Directory of Products and Materials for Professional Development.
Kohler, Paula D.; VanBeaver, Susan M.
This directory lists materials and products useful in the professional development of teachers and other providers of transitional services to young people with disabilities. Materials and products were identified through requests to state and local educators, state systems, change and model demonstration transition projects, regional resource centers, information clearinghouses, and other relevant sources. The directory is divided into five sections: (1) an introductory section; (2) the "Taxonomy for Transition Programming," (3) products and materials listed by state; (4) other transition-related resources; and (5) an index listing entries by "Taxonomy" category. Listings typically include information on nominating source, material/product title, purchasing source and price, product characteristics, relevant "Taxonomy" practice categories, and target audience. Other resources are listed alphabetically by title and include publisher, source, and price. A list of publishers with addresses, Web sites, and phone/Fax numbers is also included. (DB)
