What is high school transition?

According to federal law, transition planning must begin by the age of 16 for children with IEP’s. As part of this transition planning a student might have a goal to gain vocational experiences out in a community setting. LifeWork@FRA offers a high school transition program for these students and provides job coaching support on a 1-to-1 basis. Each student’s interests and abilities are used to develop a placement in the community where they learn how to become contributing members of their communities.
