Transition Services

Transition planning helps to prepare young students for their future. Services are based on students’ strengths and their needs. Consideration of the student’s preferences and interests are also important for successful transition planning. Nevada PEP offers trainings, and guidance on transition planning. Please review the information on this page, or contact us directly to talk about Transition Services.


School Transition Planning under IDEA

Beginning at age 14, a youth’s Individualized Education Program will include a plan for preparing for life after high school. These resources can help students and parents participate in transition planning.

Post-Secondary Education

Post-Secondary education, such as college, university, or trade school can be accessible for all students. These resources can help you plan and prepare for your student’s education.

Self-Advocacy and Self-Determination

Did you know that people who have good self-advocacy skills are more successful in school, work, and life. These resources can help youth develop this critical skill.

Supported Decision Making
