Transition Alliance

Breaking Down Silos. Building Bridges.

Kansas has been tasked with improving post-secondary transition processes for students with disabilities state-wide. Considering the complexity of services and the individualized support for each student, their families and their plans, this is a fairly monumental undertaking. Join other professionals who support people with disabilities and their families across the state of Kansas to learn about and network with other organizations. This is open to anyone who supports this process, including educators, school administrators, instructional coaches, job coaches, VR Counselors, CDDOs, benefits specialists, etc. In this group we learn from each other and the more diverse we are, the more opportunity we have to make a difference in the quality of life for people with disabilities and their families! FREE to anyone who is vested in improving post-secondary outcomes for people with disabilities and their families!

What is the Transition Alliance?

The Transition Alliance at Greenbush works with professionals of all backgrounds to ensure that they have the skills and training to improve practices and provide support to transitioning students with disabilities. 

Our main goals are to:

-Provide participants with professional development and training

-Support people with disabilities and their families across the state of Kansas

-Establish a professional learning network that can make better futures possible

-Equip professionals with the tools they need to provide individualized support to each student and their family

At Greenbush, we believe that every student, no matter their ability, deserves the best chance at success. Transitioning from a school setting into adult life can be a difficult and uprooting experience for many students facing challenges, and this is what the Transition Alliance is focused on improving.
