No. All decisions about transition services must be individualized. If your child needs daily living, problem solving, and survival skills, teaching these skills should be in your child's transition plan.
For transition services, team members need to think creatively. Transition services can include:
- Independent living and community participation
- Integrated and supported employment
- Vocational education and adult education
- Course of study, including advanced placement classes, that your child needs to reach the transition goals
- Transitional programs on college campuses or in community-based settings
Transition services prepare your child for life after school and take into account his strengths, preferences, and interests. If the IEP team will discuss your child's transition services and/or postsecondary goals, the team must invite your child to the meeting. We encourage parents to invite their children to IEP meetings as soon as they believe it is appropriate.
