Transition CA

The mission of the Transition CA website is to promote and support successful transition to employment, independent living and quality life for individuals with disabilities, including those with significant disabilities. Website users are encouraged to explore all Transition CA sections and topics.

This website includes transition resources (information sheets, tip-sheets, research articles, charts and videos) that will provide information on education, employment, independent living, and related topics. These materials have been sent and approved by transition practioners, families and individuals with disabilities. Please download documents and/or access the websites indicated. It is hoped that these resources will assist individuals with a wide range of disabilities, their families and those who support them, as they prepare to become self-sufficient adults living a quality life.

The Transition CA website is supported through the Thompson Policy Institute on Disability at Chapman University.
