To meet the high-stakes requirements of IDEA's Indicator 13, professionals need proven and practical ways to support successful transitions for young adults with significant disabilities. Now there's a single guidebook to help them meet that critical goal—straight from David Test, one of today's most highly respected authorities on transitions to adulthood.

Packed with down-to-earth, immediately useful transition strategies, this book has the evidence-based guidance readers need to help students with moderate and severe disabilities prepare for every aspect of adult life, from applying for a job to improving social skills. Special educators, transition specialists, guidance counselors, and other professionals will discover how to

  • pinpoint student needs and interests with formal and informal assessment strategies.

  • use the most effective instructional strategies, such as mnemonics, response prompting, peer assistance, visual displays, and computer-assisted instruction.
  • assess effectiveness of instruction. Get a quick guide to the who, what, when, and why of data collection.
