Transition Services Taskforce

Founded in 2013, by five of the consortiums north county Workability I coordinators, the initial and continuing purpose of the Transition Services Taskforce is to promote collaboration among the following:

  • San Diego Regional Center
  • The Department of Rehabilitation
  • Transition agencies and services
  • School District staff (administrators, teachers, related services)
  • Families (including students)
  • Employers

The benefits of this collaboration are evidenced by increased stakeholder awareness of post-secondary options for transition aged youth, increased development of CIE placements and, when appropriate, early placement of students in supported employment opportunities. 


Unifying stakeholders to best support the post-secondary transition of young adults with disabilities.


Through partnership and collaboration, providing outstanding post-secondary outcomes in the areas of education, employment and community integration for young adults with disabilities.

Taskforce Meetings

The taskforce meets quarterly to educate and update members and to strategize the implementation of practices that will improve post-secondary outcomes for transition age youth.  To this end, the taskforce solicits attendee involvement in quarterly and annual projects.  These core teams focus on projects related to transition elements such as competitive integrated employment (CIE), business partnerships, transition planning and transportation.

Self Determination Sessions

Below is the schedule for upcoming Self-Determination Information Sessions for the month of March and April.  Please plan on attending if you would like more information about Self-Determination, or would like to add your name (or your son or daughter’s name) to the interest list for consideration when the service becomes available. 

The waiver request was submitted yesterday to the federal government, and if all goes well, should be accepted!  The federal government has 90 days to review the application, but this model of service could be available as early as the end of June! 

Also, if you are part of a group that would like a training done at your site, please call our office to schedule.


New! Self Determination Information Sessions are now scheduled. Sessions will be offered in all of the San Diego Regional Center offices. The dates, times, locations, and languages offered are below with a registration link to each of the sessions. You are welcome to attend any location, regardless of where you live. Attendance at one of these sessions is required before submitting an individual’s name to DDS for consideration/selection for the first 3-year roll-out of Self Determination. We anticipate scheduling more sessions in the future. Please check back frequently for additional sessions.
