Information for Teachers and Families

As a project of the Center on Community Living and Careers, the Indiana Secondary Transition Resource Center (INSTRC) provides trainings, leadership opportunities, and resources to support teachers and, ultimately, students with disabilities as they transition from school to their adult lives, working and participating in their communities, jobs, and/or postsecondary education.

Indiana's middle and high school teachers, students, and families rely on the INSTRC website for guidance, resources, and tips on quality Transition IEPs, transition assessments, diploma options, the Certificate of Completion, and much more.

Working, Community, and Access: Data from Indiana Service Providers

How do working-age adults with disabilities spend their day in Indiana? What types of work are they doing? How much money are they earning and how many hours are they working? Who do they interact with? These and other questions related to people with disabilities who are receiving supports from Indiana’s adult services providers are reported in the Day and Employment Services Outcomes Systems Report (DESOS), a statistical documentation of the types of work or alternatives to work people are engaged in throughout Indiana. DESOS is compiled by the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community for the Indiana Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services.
