When teenagers with special needs transition from school to adult life, both they and their families are faced with many new decisions and challenges. This book provides advice and information to help families prepare for that transition, and make it happen as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.
Mary Korpi recognizes the impact of this changeover period and emphasises the need for young adults to be included in all decisions and discussions about their future, thereby developing self-advocacy skills. The first part of the book explains how families can adapt everyday routines to develop the young adult's essential life skills. The second part provides information on programs and support services, and stresses the importance of devising an effective transition plan to help teenagers explore avenues suited to their personal goals and abilities.
This is invaluable reading for families of teenagers with disabilities who are preparing to move on from school life.
