Transition Services for Students with Disabilities

Hi Community -

I am interested in youth transition and the kinds of services and supports that can be provided to youth while they are in middle and high school to facilitate their interest in career paths and adult education. I am interested in learning about the relationships between adult education and transition professionals in K12 settings. Also, I would love to learn about any suggestions you have regarding particular programs and practices that support student’s success in adult and career-related programs.
