Transition Services serve as an action plan.
The purpose of Transition Services is to reasonably enable the student to meet his or her measurable postsecondary goals. These are defined as coordinated set of activities for a student, designed within an outcome-oriented process that promotes movement from school to postschool activities.
The areas that need to be addressed are:
- related service
- community experience
- post-school adult living
- daily living skills (if appropriate)
- functional vocational evaluation (if appropriate)
Think of this section as an action plan or to-do List. It should have the activity, a person who is responsible to carry out the activity, and a timeline.
Tip: Be sure to include the student and parent on the action plan.
Sample activities related to transition services for a student who's measurable postsecondary goals are:
- Billy will enroll in a community college in the graphic arts program.
- Billy will work as a graphic artist at a local photography studio.
