- "Transition is a term used in the special education field to describe the process a student with disabilities undergoes to move from one educational setting to another (e.g. middle school to high school or high school to a higher education institution), or to leave the educational system entirely and prepare for independent living and enter the work force ... This document begins by listing the common terms used in the transition field. It then discusses transition programs and assistive technology students can use to help with transitions. It will also discuss legislation relating to transition. Because access to reading material is important for independent living, accessible reading services are listed as well. Finally, it concludes with resources and a bibliography"--P. [i].
