Amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act mandate that transition services be provided for students with disabilities who are 16 years and older. Although the current emphasis in the transition process tends to focus primarily on vocational opportunities, another important component of transition services is community participation, including recreation and leisure activities. This article offers guidance in understanding, planning, and implementing transition services in physical education and recreation settings, especially in community recreation and leisure activities for students with disabilities. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
