Transition Updates

September 2020
This Just In...
The Office for Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) has released an updated version of A Transition Guide to Postsecondary Education and Employment for Students and Youth with Disabilities (August 2020). In the updated transition guide, you will find new information about dual enrollment and the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act.

OSERS recently released a letter on the importance of continued collaboration between special education and vocational rehabilition (VR) even though students may be accessing educational services differently than in the past. The letter encourages schools and VR to use innovative strategies to further engage students and parents in transition and pre-employment transition services (Pre-ETS).
Pre-ETS Guide from WINTAC, NTACT, and TransCen

The Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center (WINTAC), National Technical Assistance Center on Transition (NTACT), and TransCen have released a new guide that provides processes and steps necessary to build effective collaboration at the local level; specifically between educators, VR counselors, parents, and other staff involved in supporting students with disabilities with employment.
