Transition Planning

Integrated transition planning is a collaborative process that helps students with an intellectual/developmental disability and their families to access the services they are entitled to and create a plan for what to do after they leave school.
This page includes resources for youth with developmental disabilities and their parents/caregivers to learn more about how to navigate life after high school.
