Transition planning for students beginning at age 14 (and sometimes younger) involves helping the student plan his or her courses of study so that the classes the student takes will lead to his or her post-school goals.
Transition services for students beginning at age 16 (and sometimes younger) involve providing the student with a coordinated set of services to help the student move from school to adult life. Services focus upon the student's needs or interests in such areas as: higher education or training, employment, adult services, independent living, or taking part in the community. Emphasis is placed on development of skills necessary for independent participation in activities after graduation (college, work, independent living).
