With the increased emphasis on ensuring that high school students with disabilities have opportunities to prepare for the world of work, it is equally important to ensure that students are exposed to basic principles of healthy living and are supported in the process of transition from pediatric to adult health care. Transition-to-work programs, operating in partnership with schools, are one avenue that can be used to deliver these concepts. Additionally, there is a growing trend within University-based medical centers to incorporate transition-to-work concepts into the medical clinical setting. Through combined and collaborative efforts such as these, youth with disabilities will enter the adult world with the skills they need to be healthy and productive employees and community members. This presentation will highlight two different approaches currently underway in South Dakota and Iowa to connect healthy living principles with transition-to-work interventions, and to bridge the worlds of health care and special education services in support of successful transition for youth with disabilities.
