What the Law says about Transition - IDEA 2004
Every eligible student is required to have a transition plan that includes
appropriate measurable postsecondary goals based upon age appropriate
transition assessments related to training, education, employment, and,
where appropriate, independent living skills and a statement of needed
transition services (including a course of study) incorporated into his or
her Individualized Education Program (IEP) no later than age 16 (or younger,
if determined appropriate by the IEP team).
