By Vincent J. Varrassi, M.A., LDT-C
With decades of experience counseling high school and college students with disabilities, Vincent Varrassi takes you beyond what students “must know” to succeed after high school and leads you through how to guide students to that point through effective transition planning.
You learn what skills must be authentically assessed, and ultimately taught, to ensure that students can graduate from high school with the skills and habits necessary for future success, plus get guidance and hands-on tools to make it happen:
- Real-life vignettes of why students with disabilities experience college failure, to help you explain the reasoning for suggested transition plans
- Sample transition goals illustrating how to align goals with students’ instructional and social/emotional needs
- Examples of how students will need to navigate college — the physical size and space, the myriad of offices and people — so you can prepare them beforehand
- Capstone Activity to help you engage students in the transition process in a truly meaningful way
- And more!
