Transition Resources for Students with Specific Disabilities
The transition suite has other stand-alone pages as well. We've tried not to list the same resources in different pages, so you may want to visit those other pages for foundational information about transition planning and services, Transition 101 especially, if you haven't done so already. The suite consists of:
- Transition 101
- Transition Resources for Parents
- Transition Resources for Students
- Transition Resources for Professionals
- Transition for Students with Specific Disabilities (you're here!)
- Visit CHADD.
CHADD is the Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Through CHADD's National Resource Center on AD/HD, you have access to several transition-related publications for those with AD/HD. The link above drops you into the fact sheet page, where you can find (in English and in Spanish): Succeeding in College (#13), Legal Rights: Higher Education and the Workplace (#14), Succeeding in the Workplace (#16), and Managing Money (#17).
- Supports in college.
College students with learning disabilities and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders who participate in the Virginia Commonwealth University Supported Education Model tend to stay in school and progress in their educational programs, according to a study conducted by the Virginia Commonwealth University Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Workplace Supports. This brief describes the VCU Supported Education Model and results of the study.
- Issues in transition for students with autism.
This 9-page document describes the efforts of several state education agencies (SEAs) to address the needs of transition-aged students with autism, describes the major barriers to providing effective secondary transition services to this population, and generates policy recommendations.
- From the Autism Society of America.
Among other things, Life After High School lists activities the transition planning team should undertake beginning in junior high/middle school to prepare a student with autism for what's to come.
