Title:Guidance and career counselor's toolkit: Advising high school students with disabilities on postsecondary options
Source:http://www.heath.gwu.edu/files/active/1/Toolkit...
Date:2007
Organization:George Washington University Heath Resource Center
Short Description:This Toolkit is intended to help guidance and career counselors to better assist high school students with disabilities in accomplishing transitions into postsecondary education and employment.
Annotation:This Toolkit is intended to help guidance and career counselors to better assist high school students with disabilities in accomplishing transitions into postsecondary education and employment. Professionals working in the area of transition can inspire and encourage students with disabilities to strive for high standards of living, learning, and working; goals that are applicable for ALL students. As professionals working with students with disabilities, we must work to reduce the persistent gap in opportunities that separates these students from their peers without disabilities.
