Parent's Role in Transition to Adult Life.
Do You Know..., v2 n1 Dec 1999
This brochure discusses the role of Missouri parents in the transition of students with disabilities from high school to adult life. It begins by outlining the requirements of federal legislation for transition planning and transition services. A question-and-answer format follows that addresses the beginning of transition planning at age 14 or younger, transition planning as part of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process, parental preparation for discussing transition in the IEP meeting, notification of parents of IEP meetings to discuss transition, and required participants at the transition IEP meeting. The last part of the brochure describes what should be discussed at the transition IEP meeting, including instruction, related services that students may need to benefit from or have access to transition services, community experiences, employment and other post-school adult living activities, daily living skills, and functional vocational evaluation. Parental resources on transition are listed. (CR)
