This phenomenological study sought to understand the perspectives of adolescents ages 16 to 21 with IDD who are transitioning out of an educational setting, as well as the perspectives of their parents. Results indicate that parents of adolescents with IDD do not feel adequately supported by the transition team. Themes related to team interaction, emotions, and communication will be discussed. Implications for the role of OT in successful transition will be shared.
