The transition to adulthood after high school is a critical juncture for students with disabilities. Educators need to help parents and students start preparing for this transition long before high school, when a formal transition plan is legally required. Effective transition planning is a long-term, ongoing process that can greatly influence the lifelong outcomes of students with disabilities. This 6-page, quick-reference laminated guide is written to address the needs of students with moderate to severe disabilities who are more likely to move into specialized vocational training or immediately enter the workforce after high school than transition to college. It reviews the school district's legal responsibilities under IDEA and Section 504, and identifies other federal laws with implications for students and adults with disabilities. It is designed to help all stakeholders, including the student, parents, and school districts, set appropriately ambitious individual goals for life after high school and develop a plan to achieve these goals.
