Description

Transitions to adulthood for adolescents with disabilities are as diverse as the adolescents themselves. While there have been marked improvements for students with disabilities, there is still concern that employment education and independent living outcomes are not equitable across groups of students. For example, adolescents of color are more likely to face exclusionary discipline procedures in school resulting in detention and court involvement which, in turn, can limit access to educational opportunities in inclusive settings. Recommending a shift toward strengths-based approaches to research and practice, Trainor explores how all stakeholders, including researchers and practitioners, can help shape equitable opportunities for youth with disabilities in transition. Transition by Design reframes disability, diversity, and equity during the transition from high school to adulthood.

Book Features:

  • Lays out an in-depth examination of the school-to-prison pipeline as a major issue in transition.
  • Examines health status and healthcare access issues relative to transition.
  • Calls for culturally responsive approaches to research by exposing the limitations of intervention methods and holes in the extant literature.
