SD Transition Services Liaison Project

Transition services are a coordinated set of activities for students with disabilities who are moving from school to post-school activities.

Transition Services Can Include:

      Training to students, families, schools, and adult service agencies on transition and development of transition plans;

      Identifying and obtaining instructional materials and assistance with implementation of self determination curriculum;

      Assistance with identification of local resources;

      Development of interagency councils to address regional transition service needs;

      Individual support/assistance; and

      Paid employment to youth who have severe disabilities through "Project Skills".

Administration

The Transition Services Liaison Project (TSLP) is a state initiated project offered through the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DRS), the Division of Service to the Blind and Visually Impaired (SBVI), and the Office of Special Education (OSE).
