Transition Services begin at age 14 and assist students in transitioning from school to postsecondary programming, college, vocational programs, or other programs. The focus of educational services for students with disabilities is based on the student’s individual strengths, preferences and interests. Post-school activities may include postsecondary education, vocational education, integrated employment (including supported employment), continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, and/or community participation. Transition planning is important to assist youth in independence as possible in all life areas.
Transition is part of the IEP process and involves many different entities and community resources that provide support to individuals. Assessments are conducted to assess a student’s strengths as well as preferences. Community-based instruction can be planned if the IEP team determines this is needed as part of the life steps of the student. Transition Specialists provide information to students, teachers and parents regarding college attendance and vocational rehabilitation. They also provide pertinent information regarding community resources that students can access to assist them. Transition specialists are familiar with different types of assessments that will provide the IEP team information regarding the path this student will take.
