IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) mandates that transition planning and the written ITP (Individual Transition Plan) become part of your child’s IEP once the student turns 16 years old – which means transition planning and the written ITP should begin sometime during a student’s 15th year. With best practice, transition planning could start in middle school.
Matrix will provide a walk-through of the ITP form highlighting specific information which should be found on the ITP. We will also discuss how the 3 main post-secondary goals of the ITP connect to the activities that support them and to the annual IEP goals.
Understanding how to help build robust ITPs empowers youth (and their parents) to be effective members of their IEP teams.
Please join us after this short training for a discussion and Q&A about planning for transition to adulthood.
