State Policies & Initiatives: 
Systems-Change Funding

“Schools are required to begin transition planning for students at age 14. With new Service options* available it is important to start early, educate yourself on new models and options, visit programs, and let your IEP team know about the new options. Schools are required to invite DORS to the IEP meeting beginning at age 18 and any other relevant entity. Ask your local Coordination of Community Service agency to attend the IEP meeting to ensure there are links between the school and the DDA system.”
