Purpose: This project will increase the number of students with disabilities graduating from high school who are college and career ready, through the implementation of evidence-based transition practices. The overall goal is to expand New Hampshire from a compliance focus to a deeper, more comprehensive evidence-based approach to transition planning.
Method: Activities of this project include: (a) increasing the use of Extended Learning Opportunities (ELOs) to improve student competency; (b) establishing a state-wide network of trainers to expand and sustain the scope of ELOs through professional development; (c) improving the degree and quality of family school engagement related to transition; and (d) collaborating with partner organizations to provide transition activities such as taking courses on university campuses, internships, work experiences, and career and technical programs.
