Abstract

The role of the pediatrician in transitioning children with disabilities and chronic illnesses from school to work or college is to provide anticipatory guidance and to promote self-advocacy and self-determination. Knowledge of the provisions of the key federal laws affecting vocational education is essential for the pediatrician's successful advocacy for patients.
