The mission of Transition Services Liaison Project (TSLP) is to enable students with disabilities to reach their maximum potential in their transition from high school to the adult world.

TSLP staff members provide support and technical assistance to students, families, and local education agencies seeking information on transition planning.


Transition services are a coordinated set of activities for a child with a disability, based on the individual child’s needs, taking into account the child’s strengths, preferences and interests; and designed to be within a results-oriented process.

Transition services are focused on improving the academic and functional achievement of the child with a disability to facilitate the child’s movement from school to  their post-school ‘good life’.

Activities provided by the Transition Liaisons include:

  • Training to students, families, schools, VR Counselors, and adult service agencies on transition and development of transition plans
  • Identifying and obtaining instructional materials for teachers
  • Written technical assistance guides and other resources made available for individuals interested in transition.
  • Initiating linkages for the student and family to adult service agencies and services for post-school success.
