Postsecondary Transitions

The Transition process helps our learners ages 15 and up prepare for successful transition into adulthood or post-high school life (career, education, independent living) and achieve their goals for their post secondary experience. 
Transition Assessment Planning Form is a tool which helps IEP teams determine what assessments will be done and when.
Transition Assessments
Transition Assessments are instrumental in highlighting an individual’s strengths, needs, and interests. Special education teachers can use that assessment data to inform the creation or annual update to IEP transition plan.  The following is a list of online transition assessments that are student led.
