Abstract
Effective transition planning requires school personnel to ascertain the preferences and interests of the student and to focus on services including instruction, related services, employment, and postschool living arrangements necessary to support postschool outcomes. While great strides have been made in meeting the needs of students with disabilities from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) students with disabilities are often marginalized and disregarded in this process. This article aims to provide tips for effective transition planning for LGBTQ youth with disabilities.
