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

Transition to postsecondary life represents a critical passage for youth with disabilities. Moving from a system of educational services as an entitlement to adult services based on eligibility can lead to transitions “to the couch” instead of success in higher education and the workplace. Kentucky provides an array of supports and resources focused on facilitating successful transition and improving postsecondary outcomes for students with disabilities, with an emphasis on students with significant disabilities.
