Effective Transition Services for Students with Disabilities: Examining the Roles of Building Principals and School Counselors
Gillis, La Tonya L.
Journal of School Counseling, v4 n25 2006
As educators prepare secondary students for post-graduate experiences, students with disabilities are often exposed to fewer opportunities that prepare them to be responsible and productive members of society. Building level administrators and school counselors are vital members in assuring that students with disabilities are included in as many post-secondary opportunities as their non-disabled peers. A collaborative effort between students, parents, teachers, counselors, and principals must occur in order to provide students with disabilities effective transition services that will allow them to become contributing members of the community.
