A Collaborative Interagency, Interdisciplinary Approach to Transition from Adolescence to Adulthood

This paper promotes four core concepts that are essential to the development and implementation of effective transition plans and process: (1) Self-determination should be the foundation for transition planning; (2) Transition should be viewed through a cultural lens; (3) Interagency collaboration is essential to effective transition (4) Transition planning should include all the perspectives, disciplines, and organizations that will impact the transitioning student.
This paper was written for and by directors and staff UCEDDs and LENDs with the aim of promoting a dialogue among key stakeholders and facilitating their engagement in pursuing a more comprehensive, coordinated, supportive, and successful transition process for youth with disabilities from adolescence to young adulthood.
