For 25 years, the Individual with Disabilities Act (IDEA) has been an important law for students receiving special education and related services. As a parent, you can do much to help your child with a disability move through their transition years.

Looking to the Future

The transition plan will lay the path toward your child’s young adulthood. It must reflect his or her choices, preferences, and needs in the areas of education and training, employment, adult living arrangements, and community experiences.

Knowledge is Power

You can become familiar with the federal regulations and the procedures we used in Pennsylvania and Titusville Area School District. Appropriate transition services will enable your child to develop the skills he or she needs for independent living.

With knowledge comes power. As you become more familiar with IDEA, you and your son or daughter will be stronger self-advocates, and you can help your young adult develop skills they’ll need for the future.
