Transition Plan Examples
Instructions:
Below you will find three stories of special education students, each followed by a
sample transition plan for that student. These stories and transition plans were
originally developed by the Georgia Department of Education, but have been
altered by DLC to reflect local practice and our view of federal and state law.
Please use these with care, understanding that every student is assessed differently,
even students with similar disabilities, and that local practices vary considerably
between school districts.
Transition Plan Examples
Case Study 1
“Rosario” is an 18-year old student in the 9th grade with moderate intellectual
disabilities and corresponding limitations in her adaptive skills. She is enrolled in
a self-contained classroom in her local high school. Rosario possesses basic
positive social skills and gets along well with teachers and classmates.
Rosario has many acquaintances in school but very few close friends beyond a few
in her self-contained classroom. Rosario, however, is very outgoing, and has a
tendency to approach and attempt to talk with everyone. She participates in a
social club for adults with disabilities, which includes group outings and
participation in the Special Olympics. She lives with her mother, and it is just the
two of them in their two-bedroom apartment.
Rosario’s mother does not drive and her community does not have public
transportation. Rosario herself has no job experience, other than a couple of
volunteer positions at a local animal shelter. Rosario does participate in her
school’s post-graduate vocational program, and attends occasional job trainings at
Wal-Mart with her class. Rosario really liked her work at the animal shelter, but
her mother is doubtful as to whether Rosario can hold down an actual paid position
in the future. Rosario’s mother expects that Rosario will live at home after
graduation.
Rosario’s mother wants her to remain in school until she is 21 years old. Rosario’s
mother depends upon the school’s SPED resources and has always relied on
Rosario’s SPED teachers for information and advice. Rosario’s mother is not
currently aware of other community resources available to her, nor is she currently
pursuing possibilities for post-school services/activities.
Rosario’s class recently completed a job assessment test. Rosario’s results lean
towards a career in Conventional-Enterprising occupations. Some of the
occupations in this category which appeal to Rosario are: animal shelter clerk,
ticket seller/taker, usher, and counter attendant in a cafeteria.

seller/taker, ushers, or counter attendant in a cafeteria. At this time, Rosario’s Course of Study is

Case Study 2
“Jeff” is a 14-year old student in the 8th grade. He is currently eligible for SPED
services due to his Asperger’s Syndrome diagnosis. Jeff currently receives
assistance from a SPED teacher in a resource affective skills class, as well as
support from an occupational therapist for organizational skills development and
help with calming strategies. The occupational therapist has taught Jeff various
calming techniques to help him relax when he becomes frustrated.
Jeff is a very bright student but struggles in his regular education classes. His
strongest subjects are history and science, which are his passions. However,
despite his enthusiasm and performance on graded work, Jeff often forgets to turn
in assignments on time. Jeff becomes easily upset at himself when he forgets
things. This brings out some immature, inappropriate behaviors, such as hitting his
head with his hand and calling himself “stupid.” Jeff is generally outgoing and
friendly, but misses certain social cues. He often interrupts others when they are
speaking to bring up irrelevant stories, but usually he can be easily re-directed.
Jeff plans to pursue a college prep diploma in high school. While he has a strong
positive outlook for the future, his goals are not always realistic. Jeff recently
discussed dreams of becoming a major league baseball player, or a fighter pilot.
He recently spoke about working at the local aquarium, because it fits well with his
passion for science.
Jeff lives at home with his mother, father, and younger sister. Jeff’s parents are
supportive and realistic. They claim that Jeff is somewhat lazy at home, and does
not have any regular chores to complete. Jeff has expressed an interest in driving
in the future, but his mother is a little nervous about the idea. Jeff’s parents would
like to see him begin to take on more responsibility in the house, and possibly
volunteer somewhere in the community.
They are concerned about his
unstructured time during the summer, and have inquired about summer camp
options.
Jeff’s case manager recently performed some vocational testing with Jeff.
According to the results, some careers that might be suitable for Jeff include:
museum director, tour guide, historian, researcher, and librarian/media specialist.

Case Study 3
“Li-Na” is a 20-year old student with Cerebral Palsy. She is currently
enrolled in the Severe/Profound Intellectually Disabled class at her high
school. Li-Na has limited use of her arms and hands, but is able to grasp and
move various objects. Li-Na uses a wheelchair, which she is unable to move
without assistance. She currently has a dedicated full-time adult aid with her
while she is at school that assists Li-Na with eating, toileting, and classroom
tasks.
Li-Na has basic communication skills, and is able to display her wants and
emotions, though not always appropriately. She smiles when she is happy,
and when she is angry or frustrated she screams and cries. Li-Na occasionally
uses a picture board for communication, but is inconsistent in using it
effectively. Li-Na has a functional receptive vocabulary and is able to
respond to short, simple statements such as “look at me” and “watch this.”
Li-Na’s parents and the school both expect that she will stay in school through
her 21st birthday. Her parents would like to know the possible options
available for Li-Na upon graduation. At previous transition meetings, Li-Na’s
case manager shared SSI and Medicaid Waiver information with Li-Na’s
parents. Li-Na is already receiving SSI, but she has just been placed on the
planning list for the MRWP Medicaid Waiver.
Li-Na’s case manager completed a transition questionnaire/checklist to
indicate activities that Li-Na can and cannot do, as well as the activities she
seems to enjoy. A similar exercise was completed by Li-Na’s parents. Li-Na
enjoys watching TV and listening to CD’s. She can consistently turn and
orient herself towards foods and activities to indicate her preferences.
Li-Na’s parents are hopeful that she will be able to obtain a Medicaid Waiver
soon. They are interested in obtaining respite care and are looking into dayhabilitation programs. They would also like to investigate assistive
technology options, particularly for communication purposes.
