Transition planning begins when a student on an IEP turns 14 and continues throughout their high school and young adult years. It is important that families, students, and professionals use this time to collaboratively plan a post-secondary vision in preparation for life after high school. The process can be overwhelming, so connecting students and families to resources, information, and services is a central goal of Planning a Life.
