“This up-to-date book is a great text for courses on transition education and services. The content in each chapter is very current and comprehensive. The authors focus on evidence-based practices and draw on research on predictors of post-school success. The case studies threaded throughout, as well as the user-focused exercises, make it easy to understand and implement the strategies discussed.”

—Mary E. Morningstar, PhD, Department of Special Education, University of Kansas


“Morgan and Riesen have masterfully interwoven the most current information and evidence-based practices in the field of transition. Examples and thought-provoking questions help to guide readers in applying transition principles to their individual situations. I highly recommend this practical and valuable 'must-have' resource.”

—Melanie Allen, MEd, Transition Educator, Davis School District, Utah


“The book provides an up-to-date overview of transition legislation, research, and practice, with vignettes designed to show practical application. The discussion questions are a useful resource for any transition-focused course.”

—Lori Y. Peterson, PhD, School of Special Education, University of Northern Colorado


“In a time when transition services are receiving increased attention, Morgan and Riesen address both larger, sweeping issues and the nuances of individual service provision. Transition for students with disabilities is a process, not an event that happens at the end of high school. This book covers in detail the questions that need to be addressed within different educational and adult service systems, while keeping the student with a disability as the central focus. Morgan and Riesen’s attention to all aspects of transition for students and families (such as work, education, independent living) is significant, and provides a perspective that is frequently lacking.”

—Jared C. Schultz, PhD, Department of Special Education and Rehabilitation, Utah State University
