Have you heard the term “transition”?
Actually, we experience “transition” throughout our lives — babies to toddlers, toddlers to school-age children, adults into retirement. One of our most important transitions is going from high school to the adult world.
Students eligible for special education support services face many barriers during this critical “transition” time. The Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA) of 2004 requires that an individual education plan team address the area of transition for students age 16 or older in order to be successful in adult-life roles.
