Self-Determination Strategies for Adolescents in Transition
This timely guide addresses transition to postsecondary education for students with learning disabilities, ADHJD, Asperger syndrome, and intellectual disabilities. This resource will be invaluable for educators, counselors, other disability service providers, and college instructors who work with these students. Over 25 years of research has shown that young adults who are more self-determined experience more positive life outcomes. These case studies illustrate the ways in which parents, teachers, employers, disability service providers, and others apply strategies, direct instruction, and academic coaching to guide and support these students while also respecting their right to make decisions and learn from their life experiences.
