Transition services help prepare students with disabilities for life beyond school.

This course details all key aspects of effective transition planning. Statistics show that, compared with non-disabled peers, students with disabilities are more likely to have lower wages and higher rates of unemployment. However, schools that provide effective transition support can significantly improve a student’s chances to succeed in life. According to IDEA, transition services must be included in the IEP. For students 16 and older, an Individual Transition Plan and Summary of Functional Performance are also required. This course concludes with transition best practices that will equip you to give your students the best transition guidance possible.
