Transition planning in the IEP process focuses on employment, post-secondary education or training, community participation and independent living. The IEP team should include the student as a part of the transition planning process. Also, agency representatives who may provide and/or pay for transition services become critical members of the planning team as well.

 Transition planning should be in effect when a student turns 16, leaves the 8th Grade, or younger if deemed appropriate by the IEP team. Students with disabilities and their families must be offered transition planning as part of their Individualized Education Program (IEP) process. Transition planning prepares students for their future after high school and through adulthood.
