Integrated Transition Planning

What is Integrated Transition Planning?

Integrated transition planning is for young people (age 14 and older) who meet the definition of having a developmental disability under any of the EDU, MCSS and MCYS legislation frameworks or agency criteria. In the education sector, schools may consider the target population to include students identified in other exceptionality categories besides Developmental Disability who have similar needs in cognitive or adaptive functioning, e.g. Communication – Autism, Multiple and Intellectual – Disabilities.  Community agencies responsible for creating transition plans are expected to continue to use the current practice regarding definitions of developmental disability.
