The stories of the lives of students with disabilities need to be told in ways that inform preservice teachers about the work involved to not just legally, but also morally meet the needs of these students. Hearing the stories, the bad and the good, of what students with disabilities have experienced from elementary through college, not only inform, but also potentially prevent some of the same mistake. This ethnographic research approach will add to the body of research concerning the transition plans necessary for every students with special needs. The richness of the personal stories of these students and how their experience can shape the future for students like them not only adds to the literature, but also offers teachable moments for professors and preservice teachers to use in classrooms. This book will herald the stories of students with disabilities as they trace their journey from the PK-12 setting into university and adult life. Using student stories as the foundation, the book's topics will address aspects that any new teacher will need to know about in order to meet the needs of today's PK-12 classrooms. Stories invite us in; while the rich content instructs us about how to meet the needs of all learners. The focus for meeting the needs of all students will be inclusive, meaning the need for all students who learn alongside their same-aged peers, in meaningfully participatory ways, as they learn grade-level content together.
