Successful Transitions: Making the Move to High School. PHP-c108
Moving from middle school to high school can be challenging and exciting, but students with special needs may need to begin preparing for the move earlier than other students. As with other major changes in a child's life, the move to high school will go more smoothly if parents gather information and do some planning. A good time to begin transition planning is six months prior to the child's last Individualized Education Program (IEP) meeting in middle school. This document offers some suggestions on how to make the move successful.
