National Transition Resources
The mission of DCDT is to promote national and international efforts to improve the quality of, and access to, career/vocational and transition services, increase the participation of education in career development and transition goals, and to influence policies affecting career development and transition services for persons with disabilities.
NTACT’s purpose is to assist State Education Agencies, Local Education Agencies, State VR agencies, and VR service providers in implementing evidence-based and promising practices ensuring students with disabilities, including those with significant disabilities, graduate prepared for success in postsecondary education and employment.
The National Post-Schools Outcomes Center (NPSO) helps state education agencies establish practical and rigorous data collection systems that will measure and profile the post-school experiences of youth with disabilities (i.e., Indicator 14). The results of collecting Indicator 14 data will be used for national, state, and local reporting and to guide and improve transition services to this population.
The Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) provides leadership and coordination for the Texas higher education system.
The State Independent Living Council, (SILC), is to ensure that all Texans with disabilities have access to quality Independent Living services by providing a framework for service delivery. The SILC upholds the principles of the Independent Living Movement: peer support, self-help, self-determination, equality, and positive systemic change.
