Transition Services

Iowa

~~“Transition services are designed to assist and prepare a student in special education to move from secondary education to the workplace or to higher education. Heartland AEA consultants assist schools, students and families in making transition plans. Planning for students' post-school lives must begin by age 14, and it requires transition goals to be incorporated into the individualized education program (IEP) process. Members of the IEP team (including parents and educators) may download the Transition Resource Guide below as an aid during the transition process.”
