The transition to adulthood after high school is a critical juncture for students with disabilities. Educators need to help parents and students start preparing for this transition long before high school, when a formal transition plan is legally required. Effective transition planning is a long-term, ongoing process that can greatly influence the lifelong outcomes of students with disabilities. This 6-page, quick-reference laminated guide is written to address the needs of students with moderate to severe disabilities who are more likely to move into specialized vocational training or immediately enter the workforce after high school than transition to college. It reviews the school district's legal responsibilities under IDEA and Section 504, and identifies other federal laws with implications for students and adults with disabilities. It is designed to help all stakeholders, including the student, parents, and school districts, set appropriately ambitious individual goals for life after high school and develop a plan to achieve these goals.

The landscape of student affairs in American higher education has increasingly become multidimensional due to more diversity of student population and more complex issues students bring to campus. This new fifth edition is designed to equip student affairs professionals to understand and know well not only the philosophy, history, mission of student affairs, and that their practice is theory-based and outcome-oriented but also that their role and function are influenced by the shifts in philosophy, mission and strategies, theories, and nature of American higher education. With most chapters substantially rewritten, this edition has included three brand new chapters which cover functional areas of fraternity and sorority life, collegiate recreation, and assessment and student learning. These three chapters are very unique in that student affairs mission, values, and organizational structure are clearly presented about these functional areas. In addition to the new chapters, the text has also expanded its content to international students, adult students, veteran students, and students with disabilities. This edition has been integrated with the most recent literature, professional standards, and critical issues in student affairs that have occurred since publication of the previous edition in 2010. The book is designed for both Master’s- and Doctoral-level students in need of an overview of student affairs functional areas. It can also be used as a teaching tool by middle- and high-level administrators who supervise interns or staff for professional development. Additionally, the text will also be useful to experienced student affairs administrators who wish to keep abreast of the current trends and issues. In the past 25 years, four editions of this book were published and each edition has been a valuable tool to serve as a primer for students, faculty, and professionals in their learning, teaching, and practice. This outstanding fifth edition is not only inheriting the wisdom of the original contributors but also flourishing the essence of the mission and values of student affairs in American higher education.

The field of education is under pressure, both external and internal, to improve the services provided to all students. In American society, and elsewhere, there is a concern that current educational practices fail to adequately prepare many students to be productive citizens. There has been a call for educational services that are more responsive to the needs of students, that use effective educational practices, that involve parents and the local community, and that adequately prepare teachers to assume more professional roles. Over the last several decades special educators have addressed these and other critical issues as they relate to students with disabilities. The knowledge gained from these endeavors can be useful in the reshaping of schools for all students, those with disabilities and those without. Indeed, this information may be useful for services beyond school whether for young children or adults. This volume has been written to address how people with disabilities can be effectively served in settings with their nondisabled peers. Because many of the students who are not well served by current educational practices have similar needs as students with disabilities, it is anticipated that some of this information may be useful in the discussion regarding the reshaping of educational systems. It is also anticipated that the mate rial presented will help in the design of more effective coordinated sys tems that serve people with disabilities throughout their lives.
