Guideposts for Success

“What do all youth need to make a successful transition to adulthood?” This is the central question that the Guideposts for Success is designed to answer. Two characteristics set the Guideposts for Success apart from other frameworks and resources pertaining to youth transition. First, it recognizes that youth in the transition-to-adulthood age group (defined as ages 12 to 25) benefit from many of the same opportunities, services, and supports, regardless of their disability status and other individual differences. Second, it explicitly identifies additional opportunities, services, and supports that may be required or beneficial for youth who have disabilities. In this way, the Guideposts for Success serves as a guiding resource for ensuring that all youth, including those with disabilities, have full access to high quality services in integrated settings to gain education, employment, and independent living.
