Areas to consider for transition planning include:
There are many resources available to assist you and your youth to begin exploring these areas while recognizing the youth’s strengths, interests, needs and supports.
Key partners include your youth’s school district. Any youth with an Individual Education Plan (IEP) will begin the transition planning process at age 14. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction website has information on these requirements and options.
“In WI, transition planning is a required part of your child’s Individualized Education Program with your school. Planning for the future helps you tailor your support, guidance and encouragement as your child to grows.”
