Transition from School Introduction

Transition helps a student with a disability plan for life after high school. The process includes identifying students’ interests and preferences. Transition services may include preparation for vocational, technical or university education, for work in the community and for living as independently as possible.

Transition empowers a student by providing choices, possibly never considered, about their future and reduces fears and discomfort experienced by parents or guardians. Effective transition planning uses a person-centered process that starts and ends with the student.  In this training find out about more about how this process works.
