Transition Assessments

Transition Assessments are conducted to assist students and their families in making the transition from school to the next steps. Through the assessment process,information is collected in the key areas of employment, independent living, recreation and leisure, community participation, and post-secondary learning. The assessment touches on the individual’s needs, preferences, and interests and forms the basis for defining goals and services to be included in the Individualized Education Programs (IEP).
