Reviews of Transitions to Adult Life for People With Mental Retardation: Principles and Practices, Preventing Teenage Suicide: The Alternative Handbook
F. Charles Mace, James Mazza
Transitions to Adult Life for People with Mental Retardation: Principles and Practices, by Ludlow, Turnbull, and Luckasson is a forward look at principles and strategies for assisting persons with mental retardation in making the transition from secondary special education programs to productive adult life. It challenges many traditional views and approaches to serving this population and represents,in my view, much of what the future holds for programming for citizens with mental retardation.Because many practicing school psychologists and those in training programs do not have direct lines to contemporary developments in this area, but often have considerable responsibility in placement and programming decisions, this book will be an invaluable resource for recent developments in programming philosophy and options.
