Transition Strategies for Adolescents and Young Adults Who Use Augmentative and Alternative Communication free pdf This book describes research-based practices and provides strategies for transition of adolescents and young adults who use AAC in a variety of areas, including educational, vocational, and social domains. This book is volume 6 in the "AAC" series and provides information on transition issues for professionals who support individuals who use AAC. It covers the entire range of planning for transition in high school through post-secondary education, employment, independent and community living. This book will bring together experts from the fields of special education, transition planning, voc-rehab, communication disorders, and AAC. Each chapter opens with a preface by an AAC user describing his or her personal transition experience. New developments in AAC technology and educational services have changed the long-term expectations of individuals who use AAC and their significant others. Positive outcomes in employment, independent living, and the opportunity for adult social relationships have provided models of what is possible, but to date these benefits have been enjoyed by only a limited number of individuals. This book will help to disseminate not only 'success stories' as a first step towards raising the expectations of those who work with individuals who use AAC.
