As provided by 22 Pa. Code §14.131 and 34 CFR §300.320, an Individualized Education Program (IEP) team must begin transition planning for each
student who is 14 years of age or older. Transition services must be a component described as part of the IEP. Pursuant to 34 CFR §300.43(2),
transition services are based on the individual child’s needs, taking into account the child’s strengths, preferences, and interests; and includes;
instruction, related services, community experiences, the development of employment and other post-school adult living objectives, and if appropriate,
acquisition of daily living skills, and provision of a functional vocational evaluation.
