Transition at Age 14 - 21
Starting at the age of 14, children with special needs and their families should begin the planning process of transitioning from school to work and from childhood to adulthood. School districts and various agencies can assist the student in developing goals to encourage friendships, increase socialization, foster relationships, prepare for adult life, learn independent living skills, access career information and assist with job training.
If you have questions about this process or would like additional support or resources, please contact the ESFRN at (800) 974-5553.
