When your child reaches 14, there are transition planning components that a required to be part of the IEP.
- Beginning at age 14 (or younger, if determined appropriate by the IEP team), the IEP must include a statement of transition service needs, which focus on the student’s course of study
Beginning at age 16 (or younger, if determined appropriate by the IEP team), the IEP must include:
- measurable post-secondary goals
- statement of needed transition services, including, if appropriate, a statement of the interagency responsibilities or any needed linkages
At least one year before the student reaches the age of majority (18 in New Hampshire), a statement that he/she has been informed of the rights that will transfer to him/her at age 18.
