As a professional working with youth and young adults with disabilities, you have a key role in the transition process.
Youth, families, and community members spoke about their dreams and goals — we listened! The the focus areas for success after high school they identified make up the transition discoveries framework.
We hope this site provides tools, resources, and training to support your work in helping youth, young adults, and their families navigate the transition process.

“The most important thing to me is to go to college and then graduate. From now and through college, I know I want a lot of stuff. I want to get my own place, get a car, and get married eventually, and have kids. I have a plan and great people with me who believe in me.”

“My grandma comes to school and understands my goals. The school team is so happy she is involved, and so am I! She says to me, ‘You want to go off to college and you can do it! You’ll get a good education. You’ll be the first one to graduate from high school and college. We can trust the school to help you finish out your schooling and help you make your own decisions.’”
“My biggest fear is being tricked into friendship. A lot of friends, you’ll think they’re your friends and find out laterthat they’re not. What I want in my future is to make friends, get to know each other, hang out, and have fun!”
