Article II PURPOSE OF THE DIVISION Although there have been many advances in education, disability rights policy, Federal legislation, and policies that increase funding of programs impacting students, those with disabilities and those without disabilities, post-secondary school outcomes for many of our nation s students and young adults remains well behind their non-disabled peers. This disparity results in young adults with disabilities not experiencing full economic prosperity leading to a career and living independently in their communities, but rather relying on Federal and State programs for their livelihood.

2 To help reverse this trend leading to the enhancement of transition outcomes for students with disabilities, the National Rehabilitation Association has developed its new Division on Transition which will focus on building on existing effective practices in the States, developing new strategies to enhance transition outcomes, and a renewed focus on those qualified professionals who provide these vital services and supports to students and other adults with disabilities. The Transition Specialties Division of the National Rehabilitation Association (NRA) has been organized to promote enlightenment, empowerment, professionalism, and accountability among its members who assist individuals with disabilities in achieving successful transition from school to work and for life. The Transition Specialties Division is subject to provisions of both the Constitution and By-Laws pertaining to Divisions of the National Rehabilitation Association and as such is fully partnered with the NRA. One of the most distinguishing aspects/characteristics of the Transition Specialties Division is the diversity of people and experiences they possess. The Division draws upon talents of its members to form a cohesive, forward thinking organization focused on assisting people in transition. Members include educators and counselors from the public and private sector as well as State VR and College/University counselors. One primary focus of the Transition Specialties Division is to identify effective practices in assisting youth with disabilities transition from high school to adult life through appropriate supports ensuring future success. The unique blend of experiences and talent makes this organization one with an original viewpoint, broad perspective and good understanding of the goals of its members as well as those people it serves. The Transition Specialties Division believes in providing and maintaining the highest ethical standards and service to aid youth in transition to overcome barriers to adulthood and adult living. It is within this framework the Transition Specialties Division also offers continuing, affordable, updated training opportunities (with appropriate credit where applicable) to keep its members abreast of trends and evolving technologies while enhancing skills of its members. Additionally, the Transition Specialties Division fully embraces advocating and promoting legislative support at both the State and National level for programs supporting VR services and IDEA/Post Secondary Education services.
