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.

Focused on improving the academic and functional achievement of the child with a disability to facilitate the child’s movement from school to post-school activities.

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
  • Written technical assistance guides made available for interested individuals.

TSLP is funded by SD Special Education Programs Office and Division of Rehabilitation Services, with Black Hills Special Services Cooperative (BHSSC) being the program management agency.
