What are Transition Services?
Transition services are activities, academic and functional, that help a child who has a disability, move effectively from school to post high school outcomes. The intent of transition is to focus on the student’s needs, strengths, preferences, and interests. Administrators, teachers, parents, related professionals, and the student work together to develop and implement a plan for attaining a successful and satisfying life after high school.
Transition services include considering the following domains:
Employment, including supported employment
Postsecondary educational activities, including postsecondary education, vocational training, and continuing and adult education
Independent living, including exploration of residential options and daily living skills that will be needed in adult life
Community participation, including recreation and leisure activities and the development of personal and social skills.
