About Us

Since 2000, the Transition Coalition has been maximizing professional development opportunities for secondary transition and college and career readiness of youth with disabilities.

Our Premise

  • Deliver professional development that leads to changes in practice
  • Support teams and individuals at the state and local levels
  • Translate research and effective practices for practitioner implementation

Our Methods

  • Use self-assessment methods including professional knowledge
  • Strategically combine web-based, in-person, in-print, coaching and other assistance
  • Find and share research-based practices and resources
  • Develop and support practitioner-to-practitioner learning methods
