As a parent, you have probably been thinking about your child's future for years. Schools are not required to address the future until your child is older, but they must have a transition plan in place before your child turns 16.
Does your child’s IEP have appropriate transition goals? Has your child made measurable progress toward these goals? How do you know?
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate we take a closer look at transition planning and transition services to ensure that our children are prepared for further education, employment and independent living. Learn what IDEA 2004 requires.
