About Transition Services

A critical component in the educational planning process for a child with a disability when he or she turns 16 years old is transition planning. This involves assisting your child and family in identifying your child's dreams and goals for their future after high school, and developing a plan to get there. Transition planning will help prepare your child to assume adults roles and should focus on his or her future goals, empowering them to crate a personal vision and identifying opportunities to help them meet their current needs as they transition into post-secondary education and training, employment, and quality adult life. Your child's transition plan may include courses and classes to be taken, life skills, career exploration, vocational experiences, and linkages to agencies that serve adults with disabilities.

Quality transition planning promotes the ability in students to advocate for themselves, develop their own IEPs, and be aware of and able to apply the laws that mandate access and accommodations after they leave school, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
