Students with disabilities transition throughout their school careers-from grade to grade, from early childhood programs to elementary school, elementary to middle school, middle to high school, or high school to college and employment. Transition is a coordinated set of activities that includes instruction, related services, community experiences, development of employment and other post-school adult living objectives, and when appropriate, acquisition of daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation.

Discussing transition from school to career and college can begin any time during the student’s education. When your child is 14 years of age (12 years of age for students with Autism), FISD begins to formally address transition in the IEP process.

 Colleges and Universities will typically provide accommodations for students with disabilities. The student must request accommodations and provide documentation of disability. Employers must provide reasonable accommodations in the workplace. The employee with a disability must request accommodations and provide documentation of disability.
