Transition Planning Information Sheet

What is Transition Planning?

Transition planning is an on-going process of preparing for a meaningful life after high school. It starts when a student on an IEP turns 14 and continues throughout high school until the student either accepts a diploma or turns age 22, whichever comes first.

Beginning the process of transition planning can be overwhelming for some families. FCSN can help!
