In the course of working with NDIS participants, Local Area Coordinators noticed barriers experienced by parents and young people with disabilities transitioning to tertiary, post school education and employment. Feedback from colleges identified that many families were approaching the end of the school years without sufficient information to know where to go, and what to do, to guide their young person.

The Step 2 Education & Employment Guide for Families has been developed to assist families and their school leavers to better understand pathways to employment; link families and school leavers with disabilities to information and resources; provide tips about how to start talking with young people about their strengths and aspirations earlier in their school years, and provide links to community and mainstream supports.
