Transition Services

Transition services for students in special education are specifically designed to assist students with disabilities in transitioning from the school system into the adult world; whether it be to continue education or find employment. Transition planning and services are required by Federal and State law regulation. It is a process which requires planning for your teen's future.

Services begin at age 14 and are reviewed annually. The outcomes identified in the annual transition planning process become the framework for the goals and activities in your child's Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
