Changing the transition process from within inside a special school
What is it about?
The article describes the positive impact of changing how a special school, working with young people, families and professionals, reorganised the process for planning for life after school. There were lots of innovations including the use of budgets for education, health and social care, peer support for young people and families and person-centred planning and curriculum changes.
Why is it important?
This is possibly one of the mast radical changes in the organisation of the 'transition' process in England and it influenced the development of government policy for young people with special needs.
