Transition Information: Kentucky


“Starting the Transition Process:

The transition planning process usually begins at the latest when the individual is 14 years old. This is usually around 8th grade. The IEP must go into effect by the child’s 16th birthday and the child must begin to attend and be invited to all IEP meetings. At this point, the IEP should include prospective course study for high school and any other services related to pursuing that course of study. The transition IEP should include services that will help the student prepare for life in the real world and complete high school according to the path that was chosen for the student with regards to graduation from high school and post-school outcomes…”
