What are the Outcomes of Quality Transition Planning for Students?

We know that when we develop and implement quality transition services in our schools, students are more likely to experience meaningful and successful adult lives. In transition lingo, the term used is postschool outcomes (or postsecondary outcomes). Transition planning is critical to ensuring positive postschool outcomes (Bakken & Obiakor, 2008).

There is research that provides some data about postschool outcomes for students with disabilities. The National Secondary Transition Technical Assistance Center (NSTTAC) has fact sheets designed to highlight key research findings about the relationship between transition outcomes and education, employment and community living.
