The transition years are pivotal for planning your life. During this time, you can design a plan for academic and non-academic courses, other learning experiences, employment and community living. The goals of transition planning are to help you understand your disability and to determine your future. One way transition does this is by connecting you to teachers and other caring adults, support services, and experiences that build skills and help reach your goals. Transition is based on values, priorities and culture, and is focused on your interests, preferences and needs.
