Adult Transition is the term we use to describe the process of getting ready for adulthood, and the time period from the mid- to late teens when it’s important to make sure that the student has mastered age-appropriate skills and understanding and is participating in activities that are appropriate for young adulthood.
IEPs for teens and young adults must include Adult Transition Planning in three areas:
- Independent living
Transition planning must include the student! It’s the only time that the IEP team is required to incorporate the student’s ideas, wishes and priorities for their own future. It’s an exciting time! And sometimes scary. We would love to help you and your family make the most of the opportunity to improve your student’s educational program and move toward a bright future! How can we help?
