The Transitions Strategy
A Transition Strategy has been developed to ensure the smooth transition of young people with a learning disability, physical disability or mental health problem from children services to adult services, between the ages of 13-25. The Strategy is based upon the National Transitions Guidance and the Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs. It was developed by a working group which consulted widely with all relevant agencies and people who use the services. The Transition Strategy has been agreed by all agencies in St Helens working with disabled children through transition.
The Strategy identifies What a good Transitions should look like in terms of outcomes and what should happen.
