Transition-Related Education Programming

2.1 Maintain focus on embedding job readiness skills into daily instruction

Continue to integrate work-related skills into daily instruction and educational programs in the classroom and community. As appropriate, increase the level of complexity.  Relevant skills include:

  • Following a schedule
  • Attention to task
  • Time management
  • Working effectively in groups
  • Following directions

2.2 Develop career readiness and transition services

Ensure student participation in a range of general education, college, and career exploration curricula and programs. Provide information or referrals to relevant state agencies, such as vocational rehabilitation services.

2.5 Build social networks

Provide opportunities to build and maintain age-appropriate social networks that include peers with and without disabilities in home, school, community, and work settings.
