Middle school educators, administrators, and related service providers play an important role in preparing students with disabilities to gain the skills they will need to succeed in high school and in life. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires IEP teams to develop a transition plan that contains postsecondary goals in the areas of education, employment, and independent living (when appropriate) for all students with disabilities ages sixteen and older. The Enhanced Special Education Services Amendment Act of 2014 passed by DC Council requires IEP teams to develop transition plans for students aged 14 and older.

This training session will introduce practitioners to the IDEA’s secondary transition planning requirements and share ways in which middle schools can prepare students to actively engage in the transition planning process, including participation in:

  • Career awareness and exploration activities
  • Self-determination skill development activities
  • Age-appropriate transition assessments that will guide IEP teams in selecting transition goals, services, and activities
