Planning Is Vital
Planning For Transition: Why It Is Vital For Your Student’s Future (HOW Series)
The transition planning process is evaluating the students skills, abilities, strengths, challenges, and preferences to envision their life after leaving school. Planning involves setting goals for the student to strive toward and identifying the needs for support. Carrying out the transition plan can begin and should be a part of the students' Individualized Educational Plan (IEP). Students and families must be actively involved in the transition planning process as early as possible and keep it moving forward. This presentation discusses the importance of planning, the steps necessary to plan, and provides hands–on tools to put a plan in place.
