What are the four domains of transition planning?

Written by Dr. Betty Patten

The four domains of transition planning for individuals with disabilities are:

  1. Education and training: This domain focuses on ensuring that individuals with disabilities receive appropriate education and training to prepare them for post-school life. This may include planning for vocational training, college, or other post-secondary education.

  2. Employment: This domain focuses on helping individuals with disabilities find and maintain employment. This may include job coaching, training, and other supports to help individuals succeed in the workplace.

  3. Independent living: This domain focuses on helping individuals with disabilities live as independently as possible. This may include assistance with daily living skills, such as cooking, cleaning, and budgeting, as well as planning for long-term care and housing options.

  4. Personal and Social Skills: This domain focuses on helping individuals with disabilities participate in community life and activities, such as volunteering, voting, and other civic engagements. This may include planning for transportation, community support services and access to recreational activities.

Each of these four domains is interrelated and important for the individual's overall well-being and independence. It's important to address all these domains to provide a comprehensive transition plan for the individual.
