The Texas Transition and Employment Guide

This transition and employment guide is for you, the student in Texas public school, who may have
received special education services due to a disability. It also provides helpful information for your
parents. This guide has steps you and your parents can take to make sure you are able to find the
right work or educational choices for you after high school. It also tells you where to get the
services you will need after high school.
The guide is divided into sections on Self Advocacy, Transition Services, Employment and
Supported Employment, Social Security Programs, Community and Long Term Services and
Supports, Postsecondary Educational Programs and Services, Information Sharing, and
Guardianship and Alternatives. Each section has phone numbers, emails, and websites to help you
find what you need. At the end of each section and at the end of the guide, you will find a timeline
of steps that you and your parents can take as you make the transition from student to adult.
