Transition: Planning for the Future
What do you want to be when you grow up? Most children begin seriously thinking about what they would like to be when they grow up while still in their early teens. It is no different for a child with disabilities. However, children needing extra help and services find that once they graduate from the education system the programs and supports they need change or often disappear altogether. Given the changes currently occurring nationwide, it is imperative for parents to actively begin thinking about the transition process and what programs and services their child may need well before he/she graduates from the education system.
