TRANSITION PLANNING

Transition planning involves helping students of differing abilities and their families identify the student’s areas of strength and areas needing support in addition to interests and preferences as they think about goals for their life after high school. This process includes looking at the supports the student will need during and after completing school including employment, education, and independent living. It's never too early or too late to begin planning for transition.


La planificación de la transición implica ayudar a los estudiantes de diferentes habilidades y sus familias a identificar las áreas de fortaleza del estudiante y las áreas que necesitan apoyo, además de sus intereses y preferencias, mientras piensan en las metas para su vida después de la escuela secundaria. Este proceso incluye examinar los apoyos que el estudiante necesitará durante y después de completar la escuela, incluido el empleo, la educación y la vida independiente. Nunca es demasiado temprano ni demasiado tarde para comenzar a planificar la transición.
