Policies and Programs

~~With support from teachers, adult agencies and families students may start or continue training after high school. Students receiving special education services participate in the development of postsecondary training goals in their transition IEPs by age 14 or earlier if appropriate.
Transition assessments are used to help a student determine what his or her strengths, interests, preferences and needs are. The data provided using training measures allow students and IEP teams to design postsecondary goals and/or correlating transition services in potentially all arenas of adult life. Postsecondary training may be required first for students to achieve postsecondary goals. Additionally, training may be required to enable students to access adult services that will support them in post-school environments.
Postsecondary training options may include, but are not limited to:  Integrated employment and Vocational/technical education  Continuing and adult education  Two- or four-year college/university coursework  Community participation and socialization  Independent living skills  Apprenticeships; on-the-job training
