​​Did You Know?

In Maryland, youth with disabilities ages 14-22 are considered "transition-age youth." This means that beginning at 14, students with disabilities should begin working with their IEP team to set goals for what they would like to do after high school, including career, postsecondary education and independent/daily living goals. They should also begin planning their transition from K-12 services to adult disability services. Visit the Maryland Transitioning Youth website​ for more information.
