Transition Checklist for students with disabilities in high school
The transition to adulthood is an exciting journey that takes time, planning and much preparation. This is a time that students and families can think beyond where they are today and dream about the future. Consider this an opportunity to converse with your family, school staff and support team about plans for adulthood.
The Transition Checklist was developed for students, families and school personnel as a resource to identify different areas that students and families may want to explore when getting ready for the future. Each area identified on the checklist is connected to a reasource sheet.
The Transition Checklist is also intended to initate very important conversations which may help students become more prepared for the future. It is designed to help increase awareness about issues that may require attention.
