Utah's Transition Guidelines for Students at Risk and Students with Mild/Moderate Handicaps.
Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City.
These transition guidelines are designed to give Utah school districts direction in planning transition programs for Utah students at risk and/or students with disabilities. The guidelines present best practices in planning to assist these special needs students from school to life in their communities. The five-step process includes planning, personnel preparation, family/student preparation, service delivery, and follow up. Materials are provided for carrying out the 31 tasks involved in the five steps; these materials include such items as lists of critical skills for successful transition, dropout prevention strategies, instructional methods for meeting student needs, and a vocational assessment flowchart. A matrix represents a view of the transition process, with two variables: the flow of students from kindergarten to post-school, and the range of exceptionalities from at risk to moderate disabilities. The logical sequence of transition programming flows from awareness in grades K-6, exploration in grades 7-9, preparation and transition outcomes in grades 10-12, and planning and follow up in grade 12 and post high school.
