Transition Services

Transition Services:

Do you ask yourself, “What will I do when my child gets out of school?” If so, you should start planning for the transition into adulthood.

Transition is the process children and their families use to think about life after school. You should be thinking about how to identify your child’s desired outcomes, and to plan their community and school experiences to assure that your child acquire the knowledge and skills to achieve their goals.

 Since planning for the future of a student with disabilities can bring about fear of the unknown, a parent may delay addressing these issues, and instead focus only on the present. It is KISS’s belief that you should start thinking about your child’s best future interest to ensure a meaningful outcome. Regardless of the nature and severity of a disability, parents will be exposed to a transitional process during the child’s school years that will provide a foundation for the adult world. This transitional process will include many facets of planning for the future and should be fully understood by everyone concerned each step of the way.

The services are to be planned as a group and are intended to drive toward a result. They should be coordinated with each other to achieve the outcome or result to best fit your child’s needs.

Simply put, we help students with disabilities and their families think about their life after high school and identify long-range goals designing the high school experience to ensure that students gain the skills and connections they need to achieve these goals and in the transition process. This transitional process will include many facets of planning for the future and should be fully understood by everyone concerned each step of the way. Planning for the future is an investment in a child’s well being!
