Putting Transition Planning in the IEP Process.
Dick, Marlene
This manual is designed to help educators who serve students with learning handicaps to provide transition assistance for their students graduating or leaving the school system. Definitions and procedures adopted by the state of California are used as the basis for the manual. The manual describes the role of special education, the role of parents and students, the role of the transition specialist, and the role of agencies. The process of transition is described as an activity spanning 2 to 4 years or more and proceeding in stages that include focusing on awarenss and assessment, exploration and preparation, the start of transition, and final transition activities and placement. Figures include a parent/guardian transition questionnaire, a transition checklist, a form for an individual transition plan, an action plan, and a transition follow up questionnaire. A case study of a student with a learning handicap is used to illustrate use of the process and the forms. An appendix provides a vocational assessment profile and guidelines for interviews with students, parents, and teachers. (JDD)
