Transition Resources

Words of "careers, life skills, adult and student programs" written on Polaroid graphic images.

Integrated Services ... partnering to achieve academic goals and realize meaningful outcomes.


Transition Services are defined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) section 300.18 as a coordinated set of activities for a student, designed within an outcome-oriented process, that promote movement from school to post-school activities, including post secondary education, vocational training, integrated employment (including supported employment), continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, or community participation.

The coordinated set of activities must be based on an individual student's needs taking into account the student's preferences and interests and shall include instruction, community experiences, the development of employment and other post-school adult living objectives, when appropriate, acquisition of daily living skills, when appropriate, a functional vocational evaluation.

Services should be based on current assessments of the student's academic, vocational, and daily living skills. The student's native language (if other than English) and culture must be considered in evaluations and planning. Transition services should emphasize skills needed to live and work in an integrated community setting.
