Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) released a new blog series
as part of a continued effort to emphasize the need for more cohesive secondary transition planning for students with disabilities.
“We are dedicated to working alongside families, students, educators, advocacy groups and policymakers to rethink transition services,” wrote Office of Special Education Programs Director Valerie C. Williams and Rehabilitation Services Administration Deputy Commissioner Carol Dobak in the blog.
Additionally, OSERS kicked off its Expect, Engage, Empower: Successful Transitions for All!
initiative earlier this year. This initiative focuses on effective transition planning to help young adults moving from school to postsecondary education, community living or competitive integrated employment.
