Navigating the Transition from High School to College for Students with Disabilities provides effective strategies for navigating the transition process from high school into college for students with a wide range of disabilities. As students with disabilities attend two and four-year colleges in increasing numbers and through expanding access opportunities, challenges remain in helping these students and their families prepare for and successfully transition into higher education. Professionals and families supporting transition activities are often unaware of today’s new and rapidly developing options for postsecondary education. This practical guide offers user-friendly resources, including vignettes, research summaries, and hands-on activities that can be easily implemented in the classroom and in the community and that facilitate strong collaboration between schools and families. Preparation issues such as financial aid, applying for college, and other long-term planning areas are addressed in detail. An accompanying student resource section offers materials for high school students with disabilities that secondary educators, counselors, and transition personnel can use to facilitate exploration and planning discussions. Framing higher education as a possible transition goal for all students with disabilities, Navigating the Transition from High School to College for Students with Disabilities supports the postsecondary interests of more than four million public school students with disabilities.

Adolescence can be a difficult time for everyone, but for parents of teens on the autism spectrum it's particularly nerve-wracking. Parents must learn to protect their children from the dangers of an environment that is not always understanding of their disease while also providing them with the skills and support they need to live as independent a life as possible. Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum offers strategies for helping children, whatever their ability level, through the changes of the teenage years, and prepares them for adulthood. Using clear examples, practical advice, and supportive insights, it covers how to help teenagers understand puberty and hygiene; the specific health risks of adolescence such as seizures and depression; preparing for life after secondary school; and teenage emotions, sexuality, appropriate relationships and dating.
