Transition Services are a team effort that provides support and guidance to students
with disabilities as they prepare to move from high school to the work place. Each
student’s transition team includes the student, parents, school staff, and VR
Transition teams assist students to identify career interests and learn what skills and training are needed to prepare for careers in
those fields of interest.

How does Transition work?
While the student is in high school, he or she works with family, school
staff, and a counselor from the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation
(DVR) to develop a plan for transitioning from high school to work.
A broad array of individualized services are available to help students
achieve their employment goals. After the student finishes school, DVR
services focus on:
- Gaining work skills needed to achieve an employment goal.
- Job match, job placement, and follow-up.
Once employed, individuals may receive additional services, if needed,
to keep a job. No person, because of race, color, national origin, creed,
religion, sex, age or disability shall be discriminated against in employment,
services, or any aspect of the programs activities.
