The transition plan is a detailed plan for helping your child meet their goals for after high school.
There are transition services your child can get during high school to help them prepare for their goals in adult life.
A transition plan is a document that outlines these services and supports for your child.
You, your child, and the IEP Team should work together to write the Transition Plan when your child is 16 and attach it to the IEP.
This is not a legal document like the IEP. But your school is legally required to do transition planning with all students who are 16 or older and have IEPs.
The Transition Plan will describe your child's challenges and needs for support in these areas:
It will list and describe these things:
Goals for each area above (if it makes sense for your child)
Services that the school can offer to help prepare for these goals
The people or parties involved (the school, family, student and outside agencies)
Action steps that each party will take
Examples of services: job training, study skills classes, speech or occupational therapy, or social skills groups.
