Did you know that a compliant transition plan doesn’t guarantee it is meaningful plan, but a meaningful transition plan guarantees compliance? Quality transition plans—those that are both compliant and meaningful—are essential for promoting seamless and effective transitions from school to post-school living for students with disabilities. 

This interactive session will: • Review the state and federal requirements, including Indicator 13, related to writing transition plans for students with disabilities. • Highlight transition assessment strategies that support the development of quality transition plans. • Present strategies for increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of writing transition plans. • Provide opportunities for evaluating and writing transition plans using learned strategies.
The session is relevant for educators responsible for supporting the development and writing of transitions plans. Participants are encouraged to bring samples of their own transition plans for activities.
