What is Transition?

Transition is a process designed to assist students with disabilities to achieve their postsecondary goals in the areas of education, employment and adult living. Through transition planning, annual goals and a coordinated set of activities focusing on both academic and functional skills are established to facilitate progress towards a student's postsecondary goals.

The transition services (including courses of study) needed to assist the child in reaching those goals.
