About Us

Since 2000, the Transition Coalition, located at the University of Kansas, Beach Center on Disability, has been maximizing professional development opportunities for secondary transition and college and career readiness of youth with disabilities.

  • 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
