Brookes Publishing Company
For students with mild to moderate, non-visible disabilities, navigating a college education without the support team they had in high school can be challenging. Help students become effective self-advocates and maximize their postsecondary possibilities with this cutting-edge book, which balances current research with the most practical guidance to date on this topic. Readers will learn how early, coordinated, student-centered planning helps students develop the academic and personal skills required to successfully transition to college. User-friendly checklists, tip boxes, activities, and illustrative vignettes translate extensive research into immediate practice with students and families. Secondary transition personnel, counselors, and educators in high school settings will turn to this book first for comprehensive, accessible information on helping students transition to college--and lay the critical groundwork for future employment success.
