Transition to Adulthood Resources

Does your high school student have a transition plan that will help them work towards their hopes and dreams for their future? Do you have a young adult who has graduated from high school but is perhaps struggling to find a path to post-graduation education or employment? Check out our new Transition Toolkit for Youth with Disabilities. It is filled with resources on transition for all students with disabilities .There are many opportunities in secondary and postsecondary programs in Vermont and more programs are being developed for students with intellectual disabilities. Do you want to learn more about the possibilities for youth with intellectual disabilities to attend college? This self-paced module from Think College! describes college options, identifies how college is different from high school, discusses the changing role of families once students are in college, and offers strategies for families and students on how they may navigate those differences.  In other news, PACER Center now offers a Learning Center with introductory content on key transition topics and has a growing Video Library of videos produced for transition-age youth with disabilities and their families. Do you or your student have more questions on transition? Call one of our family support consultants on our helpline!
