  • Is based on the individual child’s needs, taking into account the child’s strengths, preferences, and interests.

  • Includes instruction, related services, community experiences, the development of employment and other post-school, adult living objectives, and, when appropriate, acquisition of daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation.

  • Includes appropriate measurable postsecondary goals based upon age-appropriate transition assessments related to training, education, employment, and, where appropriate, independent living skills.
