Definition of Transition Services:

Transition Services is defined as a coordinated set of activities for students with a disability. It is designed to be within a results-oriented process focused on improving the academic and functional achievement of the child with a disability to facilitate the child's movement from school to post-school activities including post-secondary education, vocational training, integrated employment (including supported employment), continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, or community participation. It is based upon the individual student's needs, taking into account the child's strengths, preferences, and interests; and includes instruction, related services, community experiences,Logo the development of employment and other post-school adult living objectives, and, when appropriate, acquisition of daily living skills and a functional vocational evaluation.
