WiTransition App

Increase Self-direction and Self-advocacy

The Transition Improvement Grant has designed a transition app to increase self-direction and self-advocacy for all Wisconsin youth in the transition planning process.  We are excited for youth, schools, families, and agencies to begin using this application! 

This app is designed to help Wisconsin students and family members participate in the transition planning process.   The questions in the app help students give input into the requirements of the state and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  Individuals residing outside of Wisconsin may use this free app, but it is recommended that you first check your state laws to ensure the information is applicable.  The information contained in the app is not legal advice.  Please contact an attorney in your state if you need specific advice for your Postsecondary Transition Plan. 

Access the online App here.
