Life is full of transitions, and one of the more remarkable ones occurs when we get ready to leave high school and go out in the world as young adults. When a student has a disability, it’s especially helpful to plan ahead for that transition.
Center for parent information and resources - this page reviews the transition process and the laws behind it when you have a student on an Individual Education Plan (IEP).
Transition Coalition - Providing online information, support, and professional development on topics related to the transition from school to adult life for youth with disabilities.

Issues like health insurance, finding a doctor who takes care of adults, choosing a work or school setting, transportation and housing present new and sometimes overwhelming challenges. The Transition Guides on this page provide information and guidance.
