Transition from youth to adulthood is a crucial time for individuals with disabilities to gain important skills for adult life. Individuals with disabilities and/or their families need to learn to successfully navigate the adult disability-services system. When most students with disabilities graduate from high school, they encounter the 'services cliff,' i.e., differing eligibility rules across states and sudden unavailability of special education services, both of which disrupt the continuity of needed services. This page provides information about preparation for transition from school to adulthood and challenges faced by young adults in transition.
