    Question Help with Florida special needs transition services


    I am starting my research for a move to the Venice, Florida ( Sarasota County) area and we have a son with Autism who will be with us in this move. He is I would say moderately on the Spectrum and needs help with daily life skills, job training and more. By the time we move ( 2023) he will be 18 1/2 years old and in the post secondary transition service timeframe. I have no idea where to start in my search for the proper channels.

    Do I start with the school district or contact a non profit organization? I am not familiar with the process in this state. If I contact the school district, do I contact a specific department? I am a walking question mark honestly. I want to get a head start on all of this now as moving is a daunting task let alone with a special needs family member.

    Thank you kindly in advance for any assistance.

    I googled "autism - Sarasota County, FL" and got a ton of hits. You might try that. Also, Autism Speaks is a good recourse. And finally contact the school board. They usually have resources for graduates. Good luck!
