When your child transitions from high school with a regular diploma or reaches the age of 22, her entitlement to rights under IDEA ends.

Parents of kids with disabilities are often surprised to learn that their college-bound children are no longer eligible for IDEA services.

Don't wait! Start planning now if your child is considering college or continuing education.

For the next several issues, we will publish a series about transitioning to college that will help you plan ahead, choose a post-secondary school, find ways to finance continuing education, and navigate the challenges for kids with disabilities.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you'll find articles, information, and resources about transition to life after high school.

We hope you will forward this series to other friends, families, or colleagues.
