Transition is the lifelong process of individual evolution, growth and development. Transition is a part of our lives from birth through adult life. DOTS focuses on the transition from high school to successful adult living.
It is never too early to start preparing for the transition to adult life. Families can provide their children with choices to practice decision making. Additionally, promote their child independence by gradually having them take over parts of or entire chores around the house.
