School-based and post-school service systems should coordinate efforts to make sure students can move seamlessly from school to career. 


        Models that bring together the school, vocational rehabilitation, and state DD systems, as well as coordinating with employers and community providers, show the strongest transition outcomes. Coordination across all areas of students' lives -- academics, transportation, health care, recreation/social life, benefits, employment, etc. -- is increasingly  recognized as a key to successful and sustainable transition outcomes. In particular, the school and adult service systems must coordinate efforts to ensure a smooth and seamless transition from school to career, with no break in services.
