An Educational Journey from Self Discovery to Advocacy: A Student Handbook (June 2003 - English)

Transition planning involves thinking about your goals after high school and developing a long-range plan to get there. This includes having a high school experience that focuses on developing the skills you will need to achieve your life goals. It also involves helping you identify and link with any post-school adult service programs or supports you may need. This handbook was created for high school students with disabilities as an instructional tool for the development of self-advocacy skills and transition planning.
