Transition Planning

•  Transition into the adult world can present challenges for all young people. The process of transition is more difficult for many youth with disabilities and requires unique strategies to enable each student to achieve the maximum possible independence in working, living and participating in the community as adults.

•  Transition services include a coordinated set of activities that are designed to prepare the student for outcomes that he/she envisions for his/her adult life. This may include post-secondary education, employment, vocational training, adult education, adult services, independent living and community participation
