The best-known authors in the field of family and professional collaboration, this practical text instructs teachers, education professionals, and families on how to empower, collaborate, and advocate for children with special needs and how everyone involved can form lasting partnerships for the betterment of the children they live for and serve. The book has always been strong in its depiction of family systems theory, the history and current status of policy, and the principles of partnership and their application by teachers and other professionals, as well as the plethora of practical advice given to help educators find true ways to apply these principles on the job. The inclusion of authentic stories and genuine depictions of special needs people and their families only deepens the authenticity and richness of the narrative, and adds a unique and touching human element to the subject at hand. Backed by the most recent research and evidence-based practices, the authors have brought all citations and references in this edition up to date (2009). This new edition features: more families and their unique stories, including a Marine Corps family, and a single-parent family; more coverage of secondary students, and an overall broader range of disabilities; more cultural diversity and examples of families from different ethnic backgrounds; and the book now portrays a family's entire lifespan.

"The strengths of this text include its comprehensiveness, its overall organization, and the study aids included in each chapter. The book lays the foundation for occupational therapy practice and identifies the broad knowledge base required for this endeavor. Building on this foundation, the book progresses logically from assessment through intervention with specific foci on postural control, hand function, visual perception, psychosocial and emotional development, feeding and oral motor skills, self-care and adaptation for independent living, play, handwriting, augmentative communication and computer access, and mobility. Specific strengths in content that merit emphases are the attention to the psychosocial development and needs of children, the use of technology to increase function, the importance of families and others in the child's system through the continuing process of adaptation, and the legislation that is relevant to children with disabilities and their families."

A comprehensive, yet practical, text for diverse courses that contribute to the transition process, Transition Planning for Secondary Students with Disabilities, Third Edition, describes the varied transition needs of students with disabilities and the myriad options and career paths potentially available. The authors' approach to transition is treated in a generalized way by cross-categorical, practical, and “real” transition examples. KEY TOPICS: Redesigned to focus more directly on supporting teachers and professionals in developing and implementing transition activities, the revision remains comprehensive and provides broad coverage of transition content, ranging from the legislative-policy base to specific transition activities. More so than in previous editions, the third edition content reflects transition issues confronted at the high school level, problem-solving strategies, and updated content that reflects the IDEA. Readers of the text will find a framework for four essential elements of transition that presents themes to organize each chapter, connecting content across chapters and topics, derived from the IDEA legislation. The resulting integration of policy and practice systematically builds the reader's understanding and provides guidelines for daily transition activities. Outcomes of transition services, across various middle school, secondary, and postsecondary programs are viewed in the book from the perspective of post-school outcomes and quality of life. The combined process and outcome analysis will help the reader determine whether transition programs are doing things right, and if they are doing the right things.
