Guiding Questions for Youth Exiting from High School

Guiding Questions for Youth Exiting from High School

NTACT and the Center for Parent Information and Resources produced a guide for students to use as they exit high school and prepare to transition to college or work. This 15-page resource is designed to help youth with disabilities take steps to transition from high school to adult life. It speaks directly to youth, moving through secondary transition considerations step by step, including:

  • deciding where to start
  • questions to ask
  • getting help and local contacts (e.g., adult agencies and services, Parent Centers)
  • registering for the Selective Service
  • steps and actions to take to meet goals in education and training, employment, and independent living.

Throughout the document there are guiding questions to ask (and spaces to answer) and many, many links to sources of more information.
