Research has shown that effective transition services are directly linked to better post-secondary outcomes for students with disabilities. Research also tells us that to flourish in the workplace youth with disabilities must also be provided with the opportunity to develop leadership skills, to engage in self-determination and career exploration, and to participate in paid work-based experiences while in high school. The resources below are intended for special educators to use in their work helping students move toward adult lives as contributing and engaged members of their communities.
