Transition planning for students with disabilities focuses on plans and dreams that young people have for their futures. The purpose of transition is to provide students with the services and supports he or she needs to make a successful move into adult life. Transition planning typically begins at age 14.
Important to note:
· Transition Planning begins with the IEP to be in effect when the student turns 14.
· Transition services are a part of the IEP, not a separate plan.
· Transition planning involves the student, the family, school staff, agency staff, and others identified by the IEP team.
· Transition planning is not a one-time event.
· The transition process continues until the student exits from high school.
