Series information

Friendship 101

The eighth volume of the CEC Division on Autism and Developmental Disabilities’ Prism series, Friendship 101 focuses on building social competence, friendship making, and recreation and leisure skills among students with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities. Chapters in this evidence-based, user-friendly guide address the needs of students in different developmental periods (from pre-K through young adulthood), providing teachers, parents, faculty and teacher educators with tools and strategies for enhancing the social skill development of these children and youth. Presented through an ecological perspective, together these chapters emphasize building social competence within and across school, home, and community contexts.

Footsteps Toward the Future

“Real-world” curricula incorporate instruction in skills that support students in living independently and functioning successfully in an inclusive society: living, working, and having fun. Chapters in the book delve into the components of such instruction, discuss how to incorporate real-world skill training within academic settings, and explore effective community-based instruction and collaboration. Full of strategies, tools, and advice, Footsteps Toward the Future is both a valuable resource on real-world curricula and a “must-have” addition to every educator’s instructional planning toolkit.

Transition to Adulthood

The transition from high school to adulthood is challenging for many young people, and often particularly difficult for those with disabilities. Transition To Adulthood: Work, Community, and Educational Success provides a blueprint for supporting youth with disabilities in achieving their postsecondary goals in a variety of adult settings – education and training, employment, and the community.
This publication of the Council for Exceptional Children’s Division on Autism and Developmental Disabilities is the latest in its successful Prism series (Prism 11) and covers a wide range of topics, from assessing students’ interests and abilities to fine-tuning their education plans and goals, ensuring that students with disabilities are included in a variety of settings, and building community relationships to ensure their continuing inclusion. It provides a valuable resource for transition personnel, special and general educators, and special education administrators at the school and state level, as well as adult service professionals.

With eight chapters written by 20 authors, Transition To Adulthood covers the breadth of research delineating best practices and proven instructional strategies for ensuring that students with disabilities reach their full potential and achieve their goals.
