College-based Transition Services Affinity Group

Welcome to the Think College ‘College-based Transition Services’ Affinity Group.

The purpose of this affinity group is to support members whose work involves supporting transition-aged students with intellectual or developmental disabilities who are or who would like to include college in their transition services. The group will be guided by members’ priority topics which will be determined through a survey and group check-ins at the online meetings.

Through this affinity group, we anticipate that members will:

  • Have a professional community where they can share successes but also get help addressing challenges related to college-based transition services (CBTS).
  • Review administrative as well as training and technical assistance materials that are available and often customized for CBTS.
  • Establish professional connections with others who are expanding this model of transition services.


Our next meeting will be September 9, 2021, 2-3pm Eastern. You may click here to join the meeting, and the agenda for the meeting is here.
