OSERS believes that education and vocational rehabilitation services can work seamlessly to deliver high-quality transition programming that will prepare youth with disabilities for lifelong success. Such effective delivery under IDEA and WIOA relies on purposeful collaboration between educators, vocational rehabilitation professionals, service providers, and especially youth and families.
