Transition

Transition planning for a student’s future begins as early as elementary school with career awareness and exploration activities. Formal transition planning begins through the IEP process the year the student turns 14 and drives the development of the IEP. Students, with support from parents and educators, identify postsecondary goals in the areas of employment, postsecondary education or employment training; and if appropriate, independent living. These postsecondary goals are based upon the results of age appropriate transition assessments.

The goal of transition planning is to support students with disabilities as they progress through school and prepare for life as an adult. This includes planning for college, work, transportation, living arrangements, health care, and daily living.
