A Family Guide to Transition Services in Mass

transition
Transition is the passage of a student receiving special education services from high school to adult life as they exit from high school because the student has either graduated from high school with a high school diploma or has turned 22 years of age, the age when a school district is no longer required to provide special education services. Developed by the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission and the Federation for Children with Special Needs, this helpful Guide is available in English and Spanish.
