A Person Centered Approach to Transition

In order to gain positive outcomes for high school students with disabilities, parents must be informed of available resources, considered valued members of the planning team, and involved in the process as early as possible. This training will explain the transition process and offer suggestions for parents on how to support their young adult and plan for a meaningful future.


  • Gain clarity and alignment between current transition practices and the components of a high quality person-centered transition program.
