Transition: Education

NTACT hosts "toolkits" of resources on a variety of topics, related to secondary education and services for students with disabilities and the capacity building associated with improving such education and services. These toolkits provide an overview and then step-by-step guidance and resources on the specific topic. In this section you'll find resources on content such as competitive integrated employment, or transition assessment; as well as strategies such as planning and implementing evaluation of your work, or hosting a transition fair.

These online lessons contain video presentations and resources that can be used to equip students and others with the knowledge and skills for the transition to postsecondary education. Topics include the differences between high school and college, postsecondary education and training, selecting a college best fit, getting accommodations in college, and what you can do now in high school to prepare for college.
