The integration of transition skills into the curriculum can be a daunting task for most. It requires careful planning and alignment with curriculum in order to maximize results. On the following pages CCTS has attempted to provide resources to assist teachers with this integration. The CCTS staff are available for consultations in this area.
Many local and national organizations provide resources related to the teaching of transition skills. CCTS has tried to provide a list of organizations that provide transition related information. This is by no means a comprehensive listing but a short list of resources that we think might be helpful. If you know of an organization that you would like added to the list please email CCTS.
These resources give students with disabilities a number of options for employment, higher education, and workforce training after high school. They help transitioning students gain access to opportunities they may not otherwise receive.
It is suggested that CCTS trainings occur in the sequence listed below. Click the training title to learn more and/or request that training.
