The framework and workbook were created by state level and local stakeholders to improve individual access to services and supports, build local collaboration and improve student outcomes. This workbook is a tool to help you navigate services for students with disabilities across an age continuum to achieve the 6 Core Student outcomes that include employment, health management, community access, postsecondary opportunities, digital literacy and self-determination/leadership skills. The workbook can help to raise our expectations about what is available to access and ultimately better prepare students with disabilities for adult life.
