Disability-related legislation offers two different support systems for youth with disabilities: one of entitlement to services and one of eligibility for resources. This article offers guidance for individuals with disabilities, and the families and service providers who support them, as they prepare to navigate the transition between support systems and learn the rights and responsibilities involved in postsecondary education, employment, and adult living options. Also included are recommendations for instructing students in their rights and responsibilities.
