this website is managed by ask resource center

The Iowa Department of Education has partnered with Ask Resource Center, a non-profit resource center funded in part by the U.S. Department of Education.  The goal is to provide a website to support students, families and professionals as they plan for life after high school for students with disabilities.

Transition Iowa is a website to support transition planning for: 

  • Youth and young adults with disabilities, 
  • Families of youth with disabilities, and 
  • Professionals who support students with disabilities as they move from high school to adulthood.  The resources encourage high expectations and successful outcomes for all students.
