A Guide for Transition Age Youth and Their Families

An Introduction to Transition


  • Transition refers to the process of moving from high school to the adult world. Beginning at age 14, all students who have IEPs are required to have transition goals developed each year during their IEP meeting.


  • There are two required transition goal areas: employment and post-secondary education/training. The third transition goal area is independent living which is recommended, but not required.


  • These goals are developed using transition assessments, which are tools that help students identify their strengths, interests, skills, and/or knowledge needed to reach their goals for life after high school.
