Health as Transition Topic on IEP

Many youth with disabilities also face health issues/chronic health conditions. Health care transition from the pediatric to the adult health care system is often not addressed with youth and their families. Addressing health, health care transition and health care self-management as part of the transition IEP would be very helpful for youth with health issues. Only someone who is healthy/can manage his/her health condition can participate in the workforce, post-secondary education and recreational activities; therefore, health is a very important topic to discuss as part of school transition to successful adult life.
