The Power to Spring Up: Post-secondary Education Opportunities for Students with Significant Disabilities

This book makes it clear that education and learning after high school are both possible and beneficial for students with significant disabilities, giving them better job opportunities and more fulfilling lives.

Designed for students ages 14 and up with a variety of disabilities, it discusses the benefits of various programs and what special education law does and does not support as children move into adulthood, specific programs to show the many different types of options, ranging from a modified academic program on a university campus to a vocational residential program designed specifically for students with special needs, and offers nitty-gritty advice to students, parents, and teachers on preparing for the demands of post-secondary education.
