NEW-Roadmap to Texas Transition Resources

Did you know many local and state resources available to students or adults with disabilities go unused? The Roadmap to Texas Transition Resources includes lists by area to quickly identify needed resources: Advocacy, Financial, Legal, Education, Employment, and Community.

Texas Collaboration Institute

Gather your district teams and join us for the online event of the year! For the inaugural Texas
Collaboration Institute, the Student-Center Transitions Network (SCTN) has teamed up with the
National Technical Assistance Center on Transition: The Collaborative (NTACT: C). It is sure not
to disappoint! With national speakers, facilitated training, and a focus on district team building
and collaboration. Local Education Agency (LEA) teams comprised of Special Education (SPED),
Career & Technical Education (CTE), and Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) will begin the discussion on
partnerships that change results and lives of students with disabilities.

Defining 18+ Adult Transition Services

18 + services are designed to be specialized, age-appropriate instructional services for adult students 18 to 21 served by special education. Everything about the 18+ special education services should be age-appropriate, starting with transition assessments, instructional strategies, accommodations, and instructional environments. The resources below will assist LEAs in gaining a better understanding for defining, developing, and improving their 18+ programs. Families will be able to utilize resources on this page to assist their adult student in transitioning to life after leaving public education.

Writing Appropriate Measurable Postsecondary Goals

The purpose of this training is to give educators the information and tools needed to write appropriate measurable postsecondary goals as part of a student’s transition plan. Learning to write appropriate measurable postsecondary goals is the foundation for building quality transition services for students with disabilities.
