- John McDonnell - University of Utah, USA
- Michael L. Hardman - University of Utah, USA
"McDonnell and Hardman—along with their collaborating authors—have crafted an informative, comprehensive, and accessible textbook written to equip new and practicing professionals with the knowledge, skills, expectations, and strategies to effectively support youth and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities transition to life after high school. Overall, the book is well organized and cohesively written. Recognizing the numerous tensions inherent within transition programming, the authors embed point/counterpoint discussions and vignettes, challenging readers to think more deeply about complex and emerging issues."
"Successful Transition Programs provides an excellent resource for new and practicing professionals. Both the cutting-edge content and user-friendly format make this book appealing to preservice and unservice teachers and other practitioners involved in transition planning and services. It is my choice as the text for my university transition course."
