IDEA mandates transition services for all special education students ages 16 and older. These include services to address functional skills that will prepare the student for life after high school, including vocational skills, employment, continuing education, adult services, independent living skills, and community participation.
The transition process takes place over time and throughout the student’s educational career. Students with disabilities lag far behind their peers with regard to post-secondary outcomes. Self-care/independent living skills, family participation, collaboration, self-determination, career awareness, occupational courses, social skills, and an integrated transition program are linked to more positive post-school outcomes.
Evidence has demonstrated the importance of self-care skills, indicating that self-care skills are strong predictors of employment and independent living.
The focus of this course is to assist OT practitioners in demonstrating their unique qualifications to assist students in securing positive post-school outcomes.
