Transition Tool Kit

Family Network on Disabilities created the Transition Tool Kit for the Youth Action and Advocacy in 2011. The purpose of this Transition Tool Kit is to put meaningful resources and information in the hands of youth across Florida just like you!

In this toolkit you will find information related to transitioning from high school life to adulthood. We hope the articles, videos and web links located here can help you through this stage as you enter into adulthood.

The information provided is sorted into different topic areas; Transition Starters, Independent Living, Self Advocacy and Self Determination, Community Involvement, College and Post-Secondary Education, Employment and Job Skills.
