Parents


Helping your child on their journey from high school to adult life can bring many challenges and rewards. The earlier you begin transition planning the better. Transition planning includes your child's goals for working, learning, and living once they leave high school. The process is based on their needs and should consider their strengths, preferences, and interests. You should also consider what supports and accommodations your child might need at their job, school, home, or community. There are many parent groups that can provide support as well. The Parent Educator Resource Centers or PERCs provide training and information related to education advocacy, issues, community services, and transition planning.
