Transition experts agree that learning to get around the community is one of the essential components of all school programs for students with disabilities regardless of the type or degree of disability. By teaching mobility skills across several areas and its impact for students to learn in the domestic, work, social, self-determination, and recreation domains, educators, families, and older students have a starting point for including these goals in individualized education programs (IEP). Getting Around Town: Teaching Community Mobility Skills to Students with Disabilities provides examples of possible IEP goals and field-tested lesson plans for individual students or entire classes across all age and grade levels.
