Our passion is creating futures you can believe in.

Take the worry about getting to a meaningful, fulfilling life and replace it with a clear pathway.

What is “transition” in special education?

It thinks about the child's best future.

It builds foundational skills for successful adult living.

It considers academic achievement and functional achievement.

It is a backward design planning process - using an end goal-that drives the day to day activities, annual goals and curriculums used.

It is result oriented, student centered, and a coordinated effort.

Creating futures you can believe in™

Parent Testimonial

I thought by attending numerous conferences and information session on Transition I’d be prepared to navigate this phase of my son’s education, but I was so wrong. Transition laws are hard to interpret and each school district differs in how they interpret these laws. I grew so frustrated knowing what my son “should” be doing during these critical years, but being met with road blocks. When I was introduced to Judith Imperatore I was blown away by her knowledge on Transition and her unique experiences working with families in the same boat.

Her thorough and comprehensive assessments were like nothing else I had seen, and they allowed me to advocate persuasively to get my son what he needed and deserved based on the laws. Her creative ideas, passion for what she does and vast wealth of knowledge in this field  makes her an incredibly unique and valuable resource for any family with Transition age students.
