Summary: Help With Transition Planning

If your child is in high school and has an IEP, their school should have services and programs that can help them prepare for their life after high school.

This is called Transition Planning.

Maybe that means helping them to get a job, go on to a college program, or get adult care services to help them with their daily living needs.

Louisiana law requires that by the time your child turns 16, the IEP must include Transition Planning.

 

Here are some things the school should be doing to support your child:
