    Transition from School to Adult Life

    Overview

    Transition is a formal process of long-range cooperative planning that will assist students with disabilities to successfully move from school into the adult world.  High quality transition planning and services will enable students with disabilities to pursue their desired postsecondary goals.  The following resources are intended to assist schools, families, students, and others in understanding what to do for successful transition to happen, and how to do it.  For additional assistance with transition issues, please contact Mr. Bob Haugh (Robert.Haugh@doe.state.nj.us) or Mr. Bill Freeman (Bill.Freeman@doe.state.nj.us).
