What is Transition?
The term “transition planning” refers to the process by which a student moves from middle school to high school and from high school to adult life. For students with disabilities, the transition from high school to post-school options is a complex process that requires planning and coordination to ensure appropriate supports and positive outcomes.
Transition planning helps students and families think about their future, jointly plan high school experiences and course work, and make connections to services and supports they’ll need in high school and beyond. A multi-year process, effective transition planning leads students to better post-school outcomes, such as employment or college, as well as participation in their communities.
