- Publisher's Summary
- This is a comprehensive, accessible guide for making successful transitions to postsecondary education for students with high-incidence or hidden disabilities. Recent evidence has shown that college may be the most productive way to 'level the playing field' for students with disabilities, and this book provides the information teachers, related services personnel (e.g., counselors, school psychologists) and parents need to help students succeed. This book supports the efforts of parents and professionals to foster successful transition to college for students with mild - moderate, non-visible disabilities such as learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, and more. It not only fosters access to postsecondary education, but provides guidance for preparation so that students with disabilities have the skills to succeed and graduate. While outlining the complexities that students with disabilities face in the transition to college, this book also presents a variety of practical solutions and strategies to help students throughout the process. Through the use of vignettes, tips, and activities, each chapter translates the most up-to-date research in a user-friendly format that can be used to guide students with disabilities and their families.
