The Ohio Transition Support Partnership (OTSP) is designed to help students with disabilities, beginning at age 14, gain the skills they need to prepare for in-demand careers.

OTSP, a partnership between OOD and the Ohio Department of Education, connects students with vocational rehabilitation counselors who provide individualized transition services:

  • Career exploration
  • Work-based learning experiences
  • Counseling on post-secondary education
  • Paid work experiences
  • Job coaching & retention

As an active participant of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team meetings, the vocational rehabilitation counselor helps with earlier career preparation and coordination with the school and others agencies supporting the student.
