Transition to Adulthood is a large topic that spans age ranges. The CPIR has many resources related to transition in general and the categories associated with it, including starting the transition process in high school, graduation, higher education, employment and training (WIAO, VR, etc.), independent living, becoming a self-advocate, and much, much more.
Resources from Our Partners at the RAISE Center and the RSA-PTIs
The CPIR is proud to collaborate with the National RAISE Center in bringing the following transition resources collection to you. The information here is broken up into 8 categories that span the breadth of topics RAISE addresses for youth/young adults with disabilities and their families as they navigate the transition from high school to secondary school, competitive employment, independent living, and more.
The resources in this section come directly from the RAISE’s extensive curation of Transition-related resources from professional and educational organizations as well as advocacy groups and, of course, the 7 RSA-PTIs that work to support transition in their states.
