Abstract

This chapter begins with the historical background to current educational provisions for students with disabilities and the significant role that parents have played. The focus then turns to the concept of transition to adulthood for these young people. The chapter addresses such topics as:

  • What are the experiences of students together with their parents, about leaving school and moving to the next stage in their lives?

  • What are the components of this transition?

  • How do the educators and providers manage their roles in this activity?

  • How are the parents involved?

Enablers and barriers in this process are discussed through Papay and Bambara’s (2014) five practices, together with practical suggestions of how parents and professionals can work together to support young adults with special needs.
