The Interagency Transition Council (ITC) Web site! We offer this Web site in the spirit and purpose of a story often heard and shared as "The Star Thrower."1 Specifically, we seek to provide information and encouragement to existing Interagency Transition Councils, as well as to anyone interested in developing a new ITC. The Interagency Transition Council (ITC) team brings together a variety of stakeholders supporting youth with disabilities so they can have the best chance for success as adults." ("Interagency Transition Councils: Stakeholders at Work" – PowerPoint by Lu Nations-Miller, Ed. D., GaDOE Transition Specialist) Just as Loren Eiseley chose to emulate the star thrower, seeking to save the lives of storm-stranded starfish by lofting them back into the sea, our goal is to support you in supporting youth with disabilities to make a successful transition to adult life.

Parent to Parent provides support and information to parents of children with disabilities. One of the most meaningful sources of support are other parents who have experienced parenting a child with a disability.
