Transition to Adulthood

The Council supports education and awareness for students with disabilities, families, and educators about planning for transition and setting goals for the future. Our objective is to help families, students, and others to set high expectations and have the skills needed to engage in a student-centered, strength-based transition planning process that leads to positive outcomes in employment, education, and community living.

The Idaho Secondary Transition Institute is a capacity building conference supported by a collaboration of partners from the Idaho Interagency Council on Secondary Transition, including the Council.  Educators, Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors and school administrators receive information about best practice in secondary transition planning for students in special education.  School districts teams from across Idaho spend time learning new strategies and developing district transition plans to improve post-secondary outcomes for students with disabilities.

Current Projects & Activities

  • Support for Idaho Secondary Transition Institute
    The Council helps in planning and implementation of this institute which happened virtually in March 2021.  The next in-person institute will be held at Boise State University in November 2021.
  • Animated Videos on Social Security Work Incentives
    Six animated videos explaining Social Security work incentives have been created for Idaho. The information is presented in plain language and aims to help transition-age youth, their families and anyone with a disability understand strategies and resources available to help a person who receives public benefits go to work.
