Planning for transition to adulthood is a process, not an event.


It requires families and IEP teams to consider all aspects of adult life when transition planning.

In Iowa, transition planning begins at age 14 and considers the areas of living, learning and working. The information on this website is organized using the same categories to help families become more familiar with terms used by IEP teams.

Though transition planning is an ongoing task for families, it is one worth the time and effort!
