Transition from School to Adult Life – Time Lines

What is transition? Transition is about planning for life!

The transition your son or daughter will make from school to adult life in the community is a long journey. This journey can be difficult for anyone, but for a child with a disability, determining where to go, the best way to get there, and then completing the journey can be especially challenging. This is why it is so important for you to think, as early as possible, about the important steps your child will need to make and to develop a plan for his/her future. There are federal and state laws that guide the delivery of transitional educational services to children with disabilities. It is important for parents to understand these laws.
