Filled with case studies, best practices, program guidelines, and strategies, this is a required resource for anyone who educates or coordinates services for individuals with disabilities.

Readers will discover their part in helping young people gain access to a meaningful college education — one that promotes independence and responsibility, sharpens social skills, and builds a strong foundation for a successful career.

Professionals who work in high schools and colleges — including disability service coordinators, guidance counselors, administrators, and general and special educators — will use this important resource to:

  • help students make all of the necessary preparations, including selecting a college, applying, determining eligibility for services, and securing financial aid

  • create welcoming college classrooms through the use of universally designed instructional strategies, assessment methods, and accommodations and supports

  • address the specific needs of students who have psychiatric disabilities, learning disabilities and ADHD, and developmental disabilities

  • promote the important concept of self-determination to aid students in their transition to college life and professional life

  • learn studentsí rights and responsibilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act

  • help students practice for and make the transition to the working world, using resources such as internships, career centers, and business partnerships
