Before a family looks into any pre-designed program of transition for their child, it is important to have a vision of the child’s future. Create that vision with input from the child, keeping in mind gifts, talents and skills your child possesses. Where and what he/she wants to do is as important if not more important than programs offered by the state and agencies. Included in this Advocacy Toolbox section are some current models to use in transition and tools to help facilitate transition from high school to the world of adult services.
