SPED Post-Secondary Transition Services
What is transition planning? Transition planning is a process mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004) for all students who have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) in K-12 education. The purpose is to facilitate the student’s move from school to post-school activities.
The transition planning must:
- start before the student turns 16;
- be individualized;
- be based on the student’s strengths, preferences, and interests; and
- include opportunities to develop functional skills for work and community life.
