The need for transition services for students with exceptionalities is apparent and critical for their success after high school. It is essential for school professionals, parents, and students to work collaboratively and consultively to determine each student's future goals and develop an effective plan to meet those goals successively. This book, therefore, focuses on all aspects of that transition planning from school to postschool levels. The text provides the reader with a foundation of transition services and a historical overview of models and practices and offers a critical look at transition with students from culturally and ethnically diverse backgrounds. In addition, it presents an in-depth look at assistive technology to assist students in fully participating in the planning for their future and also describes the process for planning and the importance of family collaboration. It offers an extensive discussion of career development and the importance of work experiences and also reviews key social skills and leisure options. Finally, the text looks at independent living options and reviews available successful postsecondary education programs. The format of the book is unique and the text is written in a style that all readers can comprehend and understand; the information can be easily applied to classroom and transition programs. This book will be an excellent resource for researchers, scholars, educators, and service providers and will serve as either a required or supplementary text for undergraduate and graduate transition courses in special education.

In The Ashgate Research Companion to Thomas Hardy, some of the most prominent Hardy specialists working today offer an overview of Hardy scholarship and suggest new directions in Hardy studies. The contributors cover virtually every area relevant to Hardy's fiction and poetry, including philosophy, palaeontology, biography, science, film, popular culture, beliefs, gender, music, masculinity, tragedy, topography, psychology, metaphysics, illustration, bibliographical studies and contemporary response. While several collections have surveyed the Hardy landscape, no previous volume has been composed especially for scholars and advanced graduate students. This companion is specially designed to aid original research on Hardy and serve as the critical basis for Hardy studies in the new millennium. Among the features are a comprehensive bibliography that includes not only works in English but, in acknowledgment of Hardy's explosion in popularity around the world, also works in languages other than English.
