    Adults with disabilities enjoying active, rewarding, and meaningful daytimes in their communities that's the reality when service providers and programs tap into innovative support strategies that really work. That's just what they'll do with this invaluable book, the first to compile all the best, most current knowledge on helping adults "make the day matter."

    A call to action and an in-depth guide to the most effective strategies, this illuminating resource gives service providers proven ideas for supporting adults with significant disabilities as they

    • make a smooth transition from school to adult life

    • find or create employment that fits their goals and desires

    • pursue their individual interests and hobbies

    • participate in postsecondary education

    • develop social relationships and community connections

    • explore opportunities for paid self-advocacy and systems change work

    • maintain active, healthy lifestyles as they age

    Throughout the book, detailed case stories from across the country combine with practical guidelines to show professionals how to replicate success stories in their own communities. And with the extensive discussion of organizational change, programs will have a blueprint they can use to make the critical shift from facility-based to community-based services.

    The only comprehensive look at promoting better, more fulfilling daytimes for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, this idea-filled guide from respected researchers is a must for all service providers who want to do more but aren't sure how. Every program serving adults needs a copy.
