A Family Guide to Transition Services in Massachusetts

Massachusetts

“The Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, in partnership with the Federation for Children with Special Needs, is pleased to provide this Family Guide to Transition Services in Massachusetts to assist you in understanding the transition planning process for students with disabilities. This document was prepared as a result of a federal demonstration grant from the U.S. Department of Education: “Transition Works: Innovative Strategies for Transitioning Youth with Disabilities from School to Work.” The goal of this grant has been to improve post-school outcomes for high school students with disabilities in the areas of employment, post-secondary education, and independent living as they transition from school to work and adult life. MRC recognizes the critical importance of families in helping students prepare for adult life, and hopes that the information in this Guide will help you get started with the transition process.”
