5. Transitions to Higher Education and Employment (1 or 2 hours)

Transition represents a critical passage for youth with disabilities. Moving from a system of entitlement of educational services to adult services of eligibility can lead to transitions to the couch instead of the workplace. Kentucky provides a variety of supports and resources aimed at improving transition outcomes, with an emphasis on students with the most significant disabilities.
