“This guide will serve as an introduction to the world of “Adult Services” and will hopefully answer these questions and more. Our goal is to provide you with information that will address some of your concerns about what it will be like for your child when he/she has completed schooling. All young adults are different, as are all families. There is no single “right plan” in transition planning and what some families want for their child may or may not be what you want for yours. The best planning occurs when it considers contributions from a variety of sources: the student, the family, the school, representatives from adult service agencies, and other involved community members. It is meant to improve a student’s employment ability, continuing education options, housing options, and to develop a social and recreational network that continues after high school.”
