Texas Transition and Employment

Moving from school to adult life requires thoughtful planning. Where will you work? What will you want to continue learning after highs school? Where will you live? Will you want support to meet your goals? 

You may have been thinking about this for a long time and already have some ideas about what you want for your life. Pathways is the Texas Transition & Employment Guide to a Successful Life After High School for Students with Disabilities.

You and your family can use this guide to:

  • Understand transition planning in your IEP
  • Plan for the transfer of legal rights at age 18
  • Consider the many paths to college or certification programs, careers, independent living in the community, and adult health care
  • Learn about financial support options available for adults with disabilities
  • Identify skills and activities you can work on now to meet your goals for adult life, after graduation from high school
  • Connect with services to support you in adulthood
