The purpose of this study was to assess the inclusion of health care components in transition Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for students diagnosed with Other Health Impaired (OHI). In this study, we analyzed 50 IEPs of students with an OHI diagnosis to establish whether there are health-related components or other common health care themes. Our data indicated that even though IEP team members noted detailed health concerns on the IEPs, it is unclear whether they considered these concerns in planning for postsecondary outcomes. Data from this study support a disconnect between knowing health concerns are present and needing to be addressed but not taking them into account in transition planning.
