The down syndrome transition handbook: charting your child's course to adulthood by Jo Ann Simons is a resource for parents of teenagers with Down Syndrome. Simons addresses every aspect of the transition from school to work in a straightforward, clearly categorized manner. She discusses methods of preparing students for the working environment (vocational training, ways to obtain experience during high school), postsecondary education options, obtaining SSI and medical benefits as an adult, financial management, and most importantly, the essential role of social and family support during the transition.
