Secondary Transition

In Ohio, students with disabilities ages 14 or younger, if appropriate, formally enter into the secondary transition planning process. A truly successful transition process is the result of comprehensive planning that is driven by the student’s preferences, interests, needs, and strengths. This comprehensive planning moves students toward successful future outcomes in competitive, integrated employment, education, and independent living. 

The Institute for Educational Leadership's policy brief "Preparing Transition-Age Youth with Disabilities for Work:  What School Leaders Need to Know About the New Legal Landscape"  is intended to inform school leaders about their responsibilities under recent case law to prepare youth with disabilities for work and careers. Information within this brief supports the efforts made by state, regional, and local agencies across Ohio to promote competitive integrated employment for all students, including those with the most significant disabilities.
