Abstract

Adolescents who have disabilities face unique challenges as they progress through the transitions necessary to achieve optimum functioning in adulthood. These youths often need professional assistance to successfully negotiate these important transitions. Our article describes processes for collaborating with these adolescents, their families, and other professionals to facilitate successful transitions to a more healthy, productive, and satisfying adulthood.
