This page aims to inform administrators, educators, and families about 18+ programs and services for adult students.
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.
