Transition from school to adulthood is marked as a critical time for students with disabilities. For these students to have successful postschool outcomes, planning for that transition requires a process that promotes movement to postsecondary environments which include postsecondary education, vocational training, integrated employment (including supported employment), continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, or community participation.

Learning Objectives:
1. Participants will be able to name the two required areas to address in the transition components of the IEP.
2. Participants will be able to list two reasons why students need to be active participants in the IEP process.
3. Participants will be able to describe how a Summary of Performance is developed.
