Q:

I have been notified that next month at my son's annual case conference a transition plan will be developed for him. I have no idea what we are planning for. Could you please enlighten me? - Need to Know

A:

A transition plan is created for students who have individualized education plans to help them make a smooth and successful transition from school to post-school activities. The IEP team starts making these plans when children are 14 and updates them annually. Depending on a student's need, the transition plan could range from the courses the student will take to the services he or she will require.
