Parents and students are not alone in the transition process.
Transition is an integral part of the IEP beginning at age 14. The IEP team will continue to contribute to the transition planning process. As the student gets closer to exiting school and adult services and goals are being discussed, other agencies may become a valuable part of the team as well. With the consent of the parent, or student age 18 or above, a representative of any agency likely to provide or pay for transition services must be invited to participate in the IEP process. These agencies may include, but are not limited to, the county board of DD, Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission (ORSC), Social Security Administration, Children’s Services, juvenile or family court and Job and Family Services. The purpose is to collaborate with these agencies to provide services as needed for the transition to post-school life.
