Transition
Years
Transition:
Service vs. Location
Preparing students with
disabilities for the transition
from school to the adult world.
By age 16, every student will
have an Individualized
Transition Plan (ITP) along
with his/her Individualized
Education Plan (IEP).
Instruction for the ITP goals is
designed to support the
student’s transition from the
public school system to postsecondary adult life. This
instruction can occur in various
environments including
classroom, community, or both;
determined with input from
the entire IEP team (including
student, family, teacher(s) and
program specialist).
