 Full Description: 
This product is a very clear listing and explanation of what students with disabilities and their families should expect as the student approaches the "transition" portion of their education. This marks a shift in focus to the student preparing for their lives after graduation. According to the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), transition services need to begin by age 16, but some states require an earlier start. Click on the "Web Links" tab above to view the fact sheet online, the information is presented as succinct answers to the following seven questions:

1. What are transition services?

2. Who decides what services a student gets?

3. When does transition planning start?

4. How does the team decide which services a student needs?

5. What happens when a student turns 18?

6. Can a student in special education get a regular high school diploma?

7. Once a student leaves school, can s/he get services?
