Family members and caregivers have a great deal of knowledge and insight regarding their sons and daughters. They are usually the only one consistent person in the life of a youth or young adult. Family members and caregivers will also still be there after a student graduates from high school and moves on to fulfilling their post-secondary goals. As one parent put it “we are the transition coordinators for life”. Therefore it is important for family members and caregivers to have a good understanding of and be actively engaged in the secondary transition process.
