What is high school transition?

According to federal law, transition planning must begin by the age of 16 for students receiving Special Education services. LifeWork@FRA offers a high school transition program for students with IEP goals of vocational experiences in a community setting.  These students are provided 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.
