What is transition planning?
Schools help all students prepare for their future. If you have a disability and receive special education services, there is a process called transition planning included in your Individualized Education Program (IEP) by the time you reach age 14. This process can help you decide what you want for your future and figure out the steps you can take to meet your goals. Transition planning can help the important people in your life, such as your family and teachers, understand more about what you want for your life when you become an adult. You will have a chance to participate in this process every year until you graduate.
