It identifies the goal of transition as ensuring that individuals with disabilities can choose from a range of options that enable them to reach their potential for successful community independence, taking into account working, living and socialising/friendship factors.To achieve this, consumers, parents, community resources, government agencies and private industry need to co-operate and collaborate. The model discusses a dual approach utilising school based and community based transition teams. Keywords: Education, School age, Transition
