Utah Transition Resources

Utah State Office of Education

The primary goal of the Utah State Office of Education Special Education Services section is to provide leadership and support for educators, parents, and students with disabilities receiving special education and related services throughout Utah public schools and communities.

Utah State Office of Rehabilitation

The Utah State Office of Rehabilitation's mission is to assist eligible individuals in obtaining employment and increasing their independence. They offer many services offered by the Utah State Office of Rehabilitation through the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DRS), the Division of Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired (DSBVI), and the Division of Services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DSDHH).

Utah Transition Action Team

UTAT consists of an interdisciplinary cross-section of key stakeholders, including parents, individuals with disabilities, family members, school district teachers and administrators, specialists (e.g., transition specialists, rehabilitation counselors, school psychologists), members of advocacy groups (e.g., Utah Parent Center, Utah Developmental Disability Council), community service providers, personnel from the State Offices of Education and Rehabilitation, and researchers from higher education. Founded in 2011, UTAT stakeholders have focused their energies on four objectives: (1) working alongside parents to strengthen their involvement in all phases of transition from school to adulthood, (2) collaborating with post-secondary programs to promote educational opportunities for young adults with disabilities, (3) bringing together special education and rehabilitation to identify barriers to communication, and outlining a plan to diminish barriers, and (4) reaching out to employers to provide their perspective on employment for young adults with disabilities.

Center for Persons with Disabilities

The Center for Persons with Disabilities is Utah's Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities at Utah State University. It has a dynamic collection of projects, guided by a goal to improve the lives of people with disabilities and their families. This is done through research, education, demonstration services and technical assistance.
