New Transition Guide for Parents of Special Needs Students Released

Abilitypath.org, an advocacy organization for parents and professionals of students with special needs, has released a new transition guide from high school,The Journey to Life after High School: A Road Map for Parents of Children with Special Needs

….in an effort to ease the transition from high school to adulthood for children with special needs, this comprehensive guide examines the laws that impact a child with special needs, the importance of the individualized education plan, and the different paths a child with special needs can take after graduating from high school. “The Journey to Life after High School” not only provides the steps that need to be taken prior to graduation but also the preparation required for the new adult’s legal and medical rights. All of this culminates in a national state-by-state agency guide.
The third in a series of groundbreaking reports released by Abilitypath.org, “The Journey to Life after High School” is a tool to chart a child’s transition into adulthood. The guide gives an overview of what lies ahead and contains a detailed list of resources for where to go for support.
By treating the transition as a long-term process beginning in middle school, “The Journey to Life after High School” creates a road map for parents that will help organize the work and properly frame the expectations for this time.
