Individual Transition Goals & Services

When a student with an IEP turns 16 years of age, the IEP team will begin to develop individual transition goals as part of school services. These goals will describe the educational and functional steps to be taken to prepare the student for adult living. The student’s Service Coordinator is available to participate in the IEP meeting and to help coordinate goals and services. This IEP team will identify adaptive/independent living skills that need further development. Those skills could include personal care, housekeeping, budgeting, cooking, safety and emergency plans. Educational services may be available until the student turns 22 years old. Transition guidebooks have been published by SELPAs in each county and are available on our web site.
