Youth with Disabilities Transitioning to Adulthood

This issue will explore how professionals who work with youth in school and community environments can support youth with disabilities in their transition to adulthood. We focus on youth with any kind of disability, and how changes, supports, and policies which address youth (and their families) at this age will impact and influence a successful and easier transition to adulthood.

Articles in this issue will include:

“Transitions to Adulthood for Youth with Disabilities: Emerging Themes for Practice and Research” by Debra Stewart and colleagues

“Young Adults with High Incidence Disabilities and Social Capital During Postsecondary Transition” by Audrey Trainor and colleagues

“Enhancing the School-to-Career Transition” by Min-Chi Yan and colleagues

“Fostering Friendships: Supporting Relationships Among Youth with and without Developmental Disabilities” by Eric Carter and colleagues

“Physical Activity and Youth with Disabilities: Barriers and Supports” by Martin Block and colleagues

Release date: April 15, 2013.

Future upcoming topics include:

• Sexual Abuse (September 2013)
• Foster Youth (November 2013)
