The transition from school to work and/or high school to college/post-secondary education can be difficult. It can be even more trying for individuals with disabilities. However, with proper support, most can make a successful transition to the next phase of life.
That is why members of the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) produced A Comprehensive Approach to Transition. A tremendous self-help guidebook for youth with disabilities, this AUCD resource can help turn goals into results.
It is critical everyone have an opportunity to make the important decisions in one's life.
