We invite you to explore the many areas of transition planning via the resources available on the following website.
What is transition?
Transition is the term used for the time when you are changing from a student to an adult. The student, his/her parents, and the school begin to plan for transition while the student is still in school.
Transition is planning for a student’s life after graduation.
Transition addresses the life domains of:
Post secondary education and learning options
Independent living skills
Recreation/ leisure activities
Transition involves the student through interviews, inventories and having the student attend ARDs once he/she is 14. A student’s IEP must address transition by age 14.
Families and schools should be sure to have the supports a student will need after graduation in place before exiting the school system to provide for a seamless flow of services.
