Transition planning is when a student with a disability, along with family members, the school system, and service providers, begins to plan for life after high school. This includes planning for college, work, transportation, housing, health care, and daily living. According to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) transition planning for students with IEPs should begin at age 14.
Many of the resources on MDOD apply to people with disabilities of all ages. For some resources specific to transition-age youth (ages 14-22) visit:
