Transition Information and Resources

Transition services must be included in all IEPs when the student reaches age 14 and may be included for younger students if deemed appropriate by the IEP team (19 TEC §89.1055). 

Transition services are a coordinated set of activities that promote movement from school to such post-school activities as post-secondary education, vocational training, employment, adult services, independent living and community participation (34 CFR §300.43). They must be based on the individual student's needs, taking into account his or her preferences and interests. Transition services must include instruction, community experiences, and development of employment and other post school adult living objectives. If appropriate, daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation may also be included.
