Secondary Transition Programming
for Students with Disabilities
Secondary transition is the process of preparing students for life after they leave high school, including participation in post-secondary education or training, employment, and community living. Effective transition planning involves a partnership between the student, the family, school-age services, post-secondary services, and community agencies. In addition, transition planning entails recognizing the student’s current strengths, interests, preferences, and needs, and then identifying what services and supports he or she will need to achieve future success. Transition assessment leads to the development of measurable postsecondary goals, courses of study, transition services, annual goals, agency linkages, and the Summary of Performance. It is to be the foundation for the entire IEP.
This session will provide special educators with tips and tools regarding:
• Elements of effective transition programs

• Writing measurable transition goals
