Did you know that your child can attend public school through the age of 21? In addition, starting by age 16, it is required by the
Individuals with Disabilities
Education Improvement Act (IDEIA) that transition out of high school planning become a formal part of a student's IEP. An Individualized Transition Plan (ITP) should be
developed that outlines transition services that may include educational or vocational training, employment, living arrangements and community participation. ABA services can assist your child
with attaining these goals.
