Mission 

The mission of DCDT is to promote national and international efforts to improve the quality of and access to, career/vocational and transition services, increase the participation of education in career development and transition goals and to influence policies affecting career development and transition services for persons with disabilities.

Principles and Beliefs

  1. Career development and transition are the cornerstones for successful transition and positive post-school outcomes.
  2. Career development and transition activities promote self-sufficiency at a critical time in the growth and development of individuals with exceptionalities.
  3. Career development and transition processes are developmental and should have a life planning perspective.
  4. Career development and transition processes should address the culturally relevant preferences, strengths, and needs of youth, maximizing equity in post-school outcomes across disability, racial/ethnicity, socioeconomic, linguistic, and other home/school community characteristics.
  5. Career development and transition interventions should focus on the individuals and promote self-determination.
  6. Career development and transition processes assume and require interdisciplinary and interagency collaboration, and new connections among parents and professionals in education, community services, and employment sectors.
