Life Beyond High School

Planning for life after high school is what transition planning is all about. Successful adult outcomes depend on planning for both secondary and postsecondary education. For students with intellectual disabilities, the Florida Postsecondary Comprehensive Transition Program (FPCTP) provides resources and supports to postsecondary programs. The Florida Postsecondary Comprehensive Transition Program Act created the Florida Center for Students with Unique Abilities at the University of Central Florida and charged them with increasing the number of postsecondary opportunities throughout Florida. The act also provides student scholarships to attend approved programs as well as start-up and enhancement grants to support programs development.
