What is Transition?
A coordinated set of activities for a child with a disability that is designed to be within a results-oriented process, that is focused on improving the academic and functional achievement of the child with a disability to facilitate the child’s movement from school to post-school activities, including post secondary education, vocational education, integrated employment (including supported employment), continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, or community participation.
-- IDEA 2004: 34 CFR 300.43, Transition Services
Transition planning is an ongoing process. Planning action steps can range from everyday life experiences to direct instruction provided by a highly trained special educator. This Timeline of Transition Activities outlines general tasks associated with planning. However, transition planning is an individualized student-driven process and adjustments should be made as needed.
