What are Transition Activities?

 

Transition activities are a collection of hypothetical and real-life experiences, which teach students the necessary skills for a successful transition to adulthood.  According to IDEA 2004, a student’s courses of study (activities) should be meaningful to the student’s future plans and motivate the student to complete his or her education.

 

Ten Sigma’s activities focus on 4 key areas including training, education, employment, and independent living.   Our goal is to help teachers in guiding students to learn the skills they will need to function independently and reach their greatest potential!

Why EVERY Transition Teacher Needs Activities!

 

Most Special Educators are looking for better ways to provide lessons and information to their students that will help them to become happy, healthy, and productive members of society.  

 

Thankfully, teachers are making progress in helping students with special needs to make that transition, but as you can see – we still have work to do!  The most successful Transition programs have used resources like Ten activities as part of a comprehensive and effective curriculum.

 

 Consider the following statistics:

  • According to the U.S. Department of Labor, only about one-third (32%) of working-age people with disabilities were employed from 2010 to 2012.
  • According to the National Center for Law and Economic Justices Inc., the poverty ate for Americans aged 18 to 64 living with a disability was 28.4%.
  • According to Disability Scoop, more than 40% of America’s homeless population in 2008 were people with disabilities.
