This resource is very enlightening. It is easy to browse as well as find
particular information throughout the site. It is organized well and is
presentable. This site serves as a great resource for both teachers in a
traditional setting with students who have disabilities and for teachers outside
of the traditional classroom that are graduating students into the world.

Included in the site is information for both teachers and parents. This
information is focused around preparing disabled students for life beyond school
and involving both teachers and parents in this process appears to be a great
step in the right direction.

For teachers there are particular practices and programs to work with to better
prepare students. The site also recommends options for students to get involved
outside of the classroom with internships or community programs that will help
prepare them for the future.

There are also additional resources as well as contact information located on
the site. Also, there is research that is included in all different situations.

This site covers a wide aray of unique situations for the classroom and
preparation for student that will soon be leaving the classroom. The
information and links included have the potential to inform a teacher beyond
his/her needs in these particular situations. This is definitely a site worth
