These websites are dedicated to ensuring that people with disabilities have the opportunity to work and go to school. Here you'll find job search websites geared toward finding employers who comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as sites with advice and guidance for transitioning back to school at the elementary, high school, and college level. Additional sources for college-bound students are included to ensure a positive campus experience.

Middle School and High School Transition Planning

Parents of youth with disabilities should begin thinking about transition (planning for adulthood) as early as possible. Although the formal process of transition planning doesn’t begin until high school, it is helpful to begin thinking about it much sooner. PACER’s National Parent Center on Transition and Employment provides various consumer education sheets to assist with this process, including information on Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Individualized Education Progorams (IEPs), College Planning, and Preparing for Employment.
