Change in Age for Full Transition Plan to be in Place
Beginning at age 14, there is now a requirement that your
child's Individualized Education Plan include a plan for successful adult
living rather than just a statement. Areas addressed in this plan will include
education beyond high school, employment, and independent living when
appropriate. For additional information on transition plans, contact your
district's special education office. You can also find more information about
transition planning on the Ohio Department of Education website http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Special-Education/Federal-and-State-Requirements/Secondary-Transition-Planning-for-Students-with-Di.
