College Support In The IEP And Transition Plan

If your child is planning to go to college, their IEP and transition plan should include goals and support for that future.

Here's what you can do:

  • Talk to your child and together think carefully about their college goals: What kind of school? What do they want to study? What kind of support will they need in a college environment?

  • Make sure that these goals are reflected in the vision statement and goals in the IEP. Ask the team what supports would help them achieve these goals.

  • Make sure the IEP and transition plan include effective supports for taking advanced classes and test-taking.  Ask about study skills classes.
