Planning for Transition: Answers for Parents. CETVE (Cooperative Employment through Vocational Experience) Monograph #2.
Keul, Patricia K.; And Others
The goal of transition planning is to bridge the gap between the mandated special education services provided by public schools and the entitlement systems under which adult services operate. This paper is designed to assist parents in understanding the transition planning process. In a question-and-answer format, information is presented to address the most frequent concerns of parents of secondary students with disabilities. The information covers: methods for assisting the student to make the transition from school to work, the effects of employment on Supplemental Security Income and Medicaid benefits, description of an Individual Written Transition Plan (IWTP), how the IWTP helps in acquiring necessary services and employment after graduation, how the IWTP addresses students' community living skills and social and leisure needs, and the importance of long-range planning.
