Students with disabilities face several longstanding challenges accessing services that may assist them as they transition from high school into postsecondary education or the workforce services, such as tutoring, vocational training, and assistive technology. Eligible students with disabilities are entitled to transition planning services during high school, but after leaving high school, to receive services that facilitate their transition they must apply as adults and establish eligibility for programs administered by multiple federal agencies. This book focuses on ways to better the federal coordination, its ability to lessen challenges students with disabilities face in the transition from high school. (Imprint: Novinka )
