How do I create transition services that are based on the student's strengths, preferences, and interests? What are the differences between the IDEA and the Rehabilitation Act when it comes to transition services? In this content, teachers, counselors, parents and administration gain the knowledge to create education and employment opportunities for students with disabilities after high school. The material also explains what secondary transition teachers and VR counselors need to know in order to serve students and youth with disabilities in schools under the the IDEA and the Rehabilitation Act. Gain valuable information about IDEA, ADA, and how WIOA applies to providing transition services to youth with disabilities in high school.
