Transition In Texas
Transition services are a coordinated set of activities that focus on courses of study or activities available in high school that will facilitate the students' movement toward post high school goals. State law mandates that transition planning be in place at a student's 14th birthday. This requires planning to begin at age 13. Transition occurs throughout a student's school career. For our students with disabilities, the transition specialist provides information to the parents concerning the health and human services available once their student has graduated from high school. This service begins to take place when the student is as young as 3-5 years old, depending on the disability of the student. The Texas Transition and Employment Guide are available in English, Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese. This guide has been developed by the Texas Education Agency.
