This presentation will address three areas important to consider when creating successful transition systems. One: a compelling state-level collaboration to create a research-based and user-friendly professional development and resource portal on transition for the state of Tennessee. Two: supporting future advancement and advocacy efforts through a study utilizing National Core Indicator data to understand the connection between service settings and often-overlooked outcomes, such as relationships and self-determination, for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across the country. Three: a post-secondary education program designed to support the full inclusion of students with intellectual and developmental disabilities on campus through the innovative intersection of service-learning in a disability studies certificate program and peer mentoring by UCEDD Trainees.
