The term “transition services” means a coordinated set of activities for a student designed within an outcome-oriented process, which promotes movement from school to post-secondary education, vocational training, integrated employment (including supported employment), continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, or community participation. The coordinated set of activities shall be based upon the individual student’s needs, taking into account the student’s preferences and interests, and shall include instruction, community experiences, the development of employment and other post-secondary adult living objectives, and, when appropriate, acquisition of daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation.”
What is Transition Planning?
Transition planning is an essential part of the individual education planning process. Transition planning involves students, their families, educators, and community service providers in a unified effort to assist students in successful preparation for their adult lives.
Transition planning for high school students with disabilities is a focus on the future that brings about successful post-secondary experiences, employment, and independent living within the community after high school. Simply put, transition refers to the passage from secondary education to adult life.
