A clear understanding of the student’s strengths and needs is critical to developing and implementing effective transition plans. The purpose of transition assessment is to help Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams determine the appropriate courses of study and community/vocational experiences that the student will need to be successful in post-school goals. Whether a student is interested in pursuing postsecondary education, trade school, employment (supported included) or other activities associated with adult living, assessments will provide valuable information about the student’s abilities and deficits.

Transition Hub

Appropriate, student-centered transition planning for individuals with disabilities is an essential process, especially for students at the secondary level.  Transition is a growing field and fantastic leaders are emerging to guide young adults towards a fulfilling future within an inclusive community setting.  This site serves as a central location for educators, administrators, parents, students, therapists, and other relevant individuals. It will provide links, articles, assessments, manuals and other valuable resources that relate to best-practices in the field of transition.  Transition Hub is a work in progress.  During the next year, the focus of this site will be on the transition paperwork, age-appropriate transition assessments, and customized employment.
