Ohio Transition Support Program

 

What is the Ohio Transition Support Program (OTSP)? The Ohio Department of Education and Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) are partnering to improve post-secondary outcomes for students with disabilities, beginning at age 14. This innovative collaboration will change the nature and impact of transition services for students with disabilities in Ohio.  The new model will help students with disabilities get a head start on becoming job ready and better prepared to enter the workforce with the skills necessary to be successful in today’s workforce.

 

Who is eligible to participate? Students with disabilities ages 14-21, who are receiving services under an IEP, meet OOD eligibility criteria and who demonstrate a need for VR services are eligible for OTSP.

 

How can I refer a student? For more information, please contact your local OOD office, State Support Team (SST) Transition Consultant or SST Career Technical Planning District Consultant working in your region.
