Transition can be the most daunting time for families. As students leave school and become adults, families need to be sure that they have systems in place to ensure that their child's needs are met as they age out of school into the community.The Transition Coordinator can be a family’s guide between these two sometimes very separate worlds. However, Transition Coordination Services can be utilized for those students with medical conditions who do not receive any special services. The Transition Coordinator can bridge the gap between services in the community such as ACCES – VR, OPWDD, and other entities in the community that can assist students and families. The Transition Coordinator offers connections to link up with Medicaid Service Providers, understanding of navigating the Front Door system, links with Westchester County for Para Transit and discounted public transportation, and personal planning with families for recreational services. For students with disabilities, the Transition Coordinator also communicates and provides feedback to the classroom teacher to ensure compliance with IEP transition goals.
