See what happy buyers are saying about this set of transition assessments:

"Wow! Wish I could have had these 10 years ago when I first started having to do transition plans. Wide variety of options and ways to assess. Something in here for every ability level and kids don't necessarily realize they are being assessed. These are a must have item."

"I love how this gives my CDC kids so many things to think about and do when it comes to life skills. They enjoy the activities and it helps me get to know them too!"

"I have been wanting to update my transition assessments for my 7th and 8th graders. These are great and there are enough that I can divide the assessments up between the two grades."
