Transitioning from High School to College to the Workplace involves a few steps along the way. One of them is getting in contact with your State Services. We talk to Ashlyn Cahill a Vocational Rehabilitation counselor from State Services for the Blind of Minnesota. Ashlyn defines and explains an IPE, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the importance of filling the application out early.
This is a continuing series that will focus on the Transition process and how State Services can be one of the best tools in your toolbox for success.
You can find out more about SSB and the Transition Team on the web here.
You can contact your own State Services by searching the directory on the American Foundation for the Blind web site.
