Post-Secondary Transition

TRANSITION SERVICES FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

Transition services for students with disabilities begin when the individual turns 14 years of age. A student’s IEP team  is responsible to consider postsecondary goals for the child and provide services and interventions to assist them in attaining those goals. For more information, see the link from ODE.
