The George Washington University: Transition Special Education Online Graduate Certificate

The program responds to the needs expressed by educators and rehabilitation personnel, research concerning youth with disabilities, and legislative requirements to provide transition services for all youth with disabilities. The IDEA amendments of 2004 (P.L. 108-446) mandate transition services which include ongoing assessment, curriculum planning, and collaboration with a variety of stakeholders to include community agency personnel, school administration and faculty, and parents. The program will provide the knowledge, skills, and competencies required of secondary special educators and rehabilitation personnel to assist youth and young adults as they transition to postsecondary opportunities.

The Transition Special Education Certificate Program meets the CEC Advanced Knowledge and Skills Base for Transition Specialists (2003) which are recognized by most states, and the National Standards and Quality Indicators of the National Alliance for Secondary Education and Transition (2005).
