Education Planning

Transition is the journey from high school to adult life. Transition planning should begin when you are 14 years old or even earlier (or later if you haven't started yet!). Transition planning includes your goals for working, learning, and living once you leave high school. The process is based on your needs and should consider your strengths, preferences, and interests. All students (and families) should plan for life after high school. You should also consider what supports and accommodations you might need at your job, school, home, or community.

Career Planning (Working): What jobs or careers interest you? What knowledge, skills and experience do you need to obtain a job in your chosen field? There are many people who can help you gain work experience, training, or other assistance along the way.

Education Planning (Learning): What training or education do you need after high school? Consider where you want to go to school, how to pay for it, and what courses you should take before leaving high school.

Independent Living (Living): Where do you want to live after high school? Will you be in a college dorm, apartment, or at home? What type of assistance will you need? Managing money, navigating transportation, cooking, and home repairs are all skills you may need.
