Pennsylvania Secondary Transition services are provided to students with IEP's beginning at age 14. Students and parents are provided with surveys to begin to determine post-secondary interests regarding education/training, employment, as well as their ability to access the community and living arrangements. This information becomes an integral part of the IEP and is reviewed yearly. The goal of all transition services is to best prepare our students to be successful producers and consumers after completing high school
Students and parents can use this checklist to prepare for life after high school. They can bring it to meetings with school and/or agency supporters to talk about progress and how best to plan for the future.
One of the most important ways for you to be involved in your child’s education is to be informed. There are many resources, training events, and videos available on the Pattan link above to assist students and families in learning about the transition process.
