Mahanay-Castro reviews the laws protecting students with disabilities for parents, teachers, and administrators in public school settings by providing practical, applicable guidance for building transition programs to assist special education students in moving to adult living. A brief history and explanation of laws pertaining to the subject in chapter 2 prepares the reader for chapter 3, the services provided through individualized education plans, and chapter 4, transitioning the laws and plans to operationalization. Following chapters explore goals for postschool life preparation and portfolio preparation. The author also evaluates whether or not schools currently adequately prepare special education students for postschool living. The appendix provides a comprehensive collection of portfolio artifacts applicable in almost any special education program. The book has immediate practicality, and is easily accessible and useful to anyone working with students with special needs. It is highly recommended for special education teachers, education majors, school administrators, parents of students with disabilities, and school curriculum and instruction designers. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.
