The Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI) recently released an excellent series of free transition guide booklets.
OCALI’s mission is rooted in respect for individual persons. OCALI’s goal is to increase the capacity of family members and professionals to effectively support individuals in attaining their personal goals. Self-advocates and family members serve on the board along with professionals.
The recently published (second edition) Transition Guidelines series outlines research-based best practice related to age-appropriate transition assessment, employment, IEP components and school-age special education. The guide booklets focus on the needs of students from middle school through adulthood. They are user-friendly and include many links to related resources.
The guide booklets are designated as supports for youth on the autism spectrum. However, many of the practices and linked resources are relevant for any young person with intensive, highly individualized support needs.
You can access the guide booklets for free here.
