You will chose three communities near your residential area and examine factors that would be related to transition in each. One will be an urban setting, one a suburban setting, and one a rural setting. Ideally, the three will all be within the same broad geographic area. This can be done as a PowerPoint.
You will research the following:
• Transition supports at the local high school (if there are multiple, pick one)
• Employment trends and options for individuals with disabilities
• Transportation options for individuals with disabilites
• Postsecondary education and training options
• Community agencies
In addition to summarizing each of these of each of the communities, analyze how that might impact transition options and planning for a students with disabilities. Make sure you discuss the needs of students with mild, moderate and severe needs.
The attached guide is simply a planning guide to help you make sure you cover all aspects.
