Social capital, relationships, and networks among people who share resources with one another, is essential to the successful transition into adulthood for all individuals--with or without disabilities. Social capital is particularly valuable for youth with disabilities because it has the potential to create access to other forms of capital as they face challenges specific to disability and interact in the adult worlds of employment, postsecondary education, and community. This article will discuss how young adults with high incidence disabilities are connected to social networks as part of their transition to adult outcomes, including employment, postsecondary education, and community life. It concludes with implications for promoting positive social networks to improve adulthood. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
