    Transition services are activities that prepare students with disabilities to move from school to post-school life.  The activities must be based on the student’s needs, preferences, and interests, and shall include needed activities in the following areas:

    1. Instruction 
    2. Related services
    3. Community experiences
    4. Development of employment and other post-school adult living objectives
    5. Acquisition of daily living skills (when appropriate)
    6. Functional vocational evaluation

    It's never too early for parents to think about transition. Transition plans should actually drive the IEP goals so that students are prepared to the fullest extent possible.
