The transition to adulthood after high school is a critical juncture for students with disabilities. Educators need to help parents and students start preparing for this transition long before high school, when a formal transition plan is legally required. Effective transition planning is a long-term, ongoing process that can greatly influence the lifelong outcomes of students with disabilities. This 6-page, quick-reference laminated guide is written to address the needs of students with moderate to severe disabilities who are more likely to move into specialized vocational training or immediately enter the workforce after high school than transition to college. It reviews the school district's legal responsibilities under IDEA and Section 504, and identifies other federal laws with implications for students and adults with disabilities. It is designed to help all stakeholders, including the student, parents, and school districts, set appropriately ambitious individual goals for life after high school and develop a plan to achieve these goals.

The Fifth Edition of Richard Gargiulo’s well-respected Special Education in Contemporary Society: An Introduction to Exceptionality offers a comprehensive, engaging, and easy-to-read introduction to special education. Grounded in research and updated to reflect the most current thinking and standards of the field, the book provides students with the skills and knowledge to become successful teachers. Gargiulo’s text encourages a deep awareness and understanding of the human side of special education. The book provides students a rare glimpse into the lives of exceptional students and their families, as well as the teachers that work with exceptional persons throughout their lives. The New Edition of Gargiulo’s groundbreaking text maintains the broad context and research focus for which it is known, while expanding on current trends and contemporary issues to better serve both pre-service and in-service teachers of exceptional individuals. The text is organized into two distinct parts to offer students a truly comprehensive and humane understanding of exceptionality. In Part I, readers are provided strong foundational perspective on broad topics that affect all individuals with an exceptionality. In Part II, Gargiulo engages students with thorough examinations of individual exceptionalities, and discusses historical, personal, and educational details of each exceptionality as it affects a person across the lifespan. “This is a well-written, comprehensive, well-organized text. It is obvious that much thought has been put into the supplementary materials and features.”—Jenny Fererro, Palomar College

A comprehensive, yet practical, text for diverse courses that contribute to the transition process, Transition Planning for Secondary Students with Disabilities, Third Edition, describes the varied transition needs of students with disabilities and the myriad options and career paths potentially available. The authors' approach to transition is treated in a generalized way by cross-categorical, practical, and “real” transition examples. KEY TOPICS: Redesigned to focus more directly on supporting teachers and professionals in developing and implementing transition activities, the revision remains comprehensive and provides broad coverage of transition content, ranging from the legislative-policy base to specific transition activities. More so than in previous editions, the third edition content reflects transition issues confronted at the high school level, problem-solving strategies, and updated content that reflects the IDEA. Readers of the text will find a framework for four essential elements of transition that presents themes to organize each chapter, connecting content across chapters and topics, derived from the IDEA legislation. The resulting integration of policy and practice systematically builds the reader's understanding and provides guidelines for daily transition activities. Outcomes of transition services, across various middle school, secondary, and postsecondary programs are viewed in the book from the perspective of post-school outcomes and quality of life. The combined process and outcome analysis will help the reader determine whether transition programs are doing things right, and if they are doing the right things.

This text offers a wealth of practical and proven strategies for successfully including students with disabilities in general education classrooms. The text provides targeted strategies for the subject and skill areas, as well as special needs of individual students, with a strong focus on instructional strategies applied to specific student need areas. An overall theme of “effective, differentiated instruction” is infused throughout the text, relating to those practices that are most closely aligned with academic success. The text is unique in its three-part coverage of 1). the fundamentals of teaching students with special needs, 2). effective general teaching practices, and 3).inclusive practices in specific subject areas. With a strong focus on instructional strategies and how they are applied to specific student need areas, the text goes further by featuring more specific strategies than any other text, and extensive information about the most effective strategies available, and when and how to use them.. This strong focus instructs pre-service teachers and other education personnel on how they can implement in the classroom specific strategies to address a very wide range of grade levels, skill levels, academic content areas; and extensive and very specific information on strategies teachers can use in the areas of most concern to them, e.g., behavior management, handling student confrontations, promoting literacy, memory for school content, motivation to learn, maintaining student attention, adapting assessment and improving test scores, and specific strategies for adapting specific lessons in math, science, social studies, and career and technical education. Specifically written for pre-service or in-service special education teachers who will work with general education teachers in K-12 classrooms, the text is also relevant for school psychologists, counselors, support staff, and other school personnel interested in helping all students succeed in the classroom.
