IDEA 2004 Transition Services

IDEA 2004 defines transition services as:

Section 602 (34) Transition Services: The term ‘transition services’ means a coordinated set of activities for a child with a disability that-

(A) is designed to be within a results-oriented process, that is focused on improving the academic and functional achievement of the child with a disability to facilitate the child’s move from school to post-school activities including post-secondary education, vocational education, integrated employment (including supported employment), continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, or community participation;

(B) is based upon the individual child’s needs, taking into account the child’s strengths, preferences, and interests; and

(C) includes instruction, related services, community experiences, the development of employment and other post-school adult living skills and, when appropriate acquisition of daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation.  602(34)

IDEA 2004 goes on further in Section 614 to describe content that should be included in the IEP to address transition:

(VIII) beginning not later than the first IEP to be in effect when the child is 16 and updated annually thereafter-

(aa) Appropriate measurable postsecondary goals based upon age appropriate transition assessments related to training, education, employment, and where appropriate, independent living skills;

(bb) the transition services (including courses of study) needed by the child to reach those goals, including services to be provided by other agencies when needed;

(cc) Beginning not later than 1 year before the child reaches the age of majority under State law, a statement that the child has been informed of the child’s rights under this title, if any, that will transfer to the child on reaching the age of majority under section 615(m). 614(d)(1)(A)(VII)

Although federal statute now requires transition planning to begin at age 16, Rhode Island continues to begin secondary transition planning at age 14.

One characteristic of extraordinary teachers is that they're not fazed by kids who challenge them; indeed, they welcome this. They're willing to reconsider what they've said, secure enough not to need to have the last word, & aware that arguing may help to sharpen kids' thinking.

Excited to be co-leading our awesome RI Team w/ @Riebate75 advocating 4 IDEA funding, strengthening the pipeline of special educators, and mental health matters! @davidcicilline #SELS2021 @SenWhitehouse @SenJackReed @JimLangevin @ameyer1026 👏👏👏👏
