Begin with the End in Mind: Infusing Transition Planning and Instruction into Elementary Classrooms
Papay, Clare; Unger, Darlene D.; Williams-Diehm, Kendra; Mitchell, Vickie
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v47 n6 p310-318 Jul-Aug 2015
There is a widespread misconception that transition planning and programming begin in high school. However, there are many opportunities for teachers to infuse transition-focused education into teaching and learning activities for their elementary-grade students. Teachers can engage students with disabilities and their families in transition-focused activities throughout the elementary school years. Activities include helping students build self-determination and career awareness as well as increasing parental knowledge about the longitudinal nature of transition planning.
