    Who is eligible for transition services?
    IDEA of 1990 and its reauthorization , IDEA of 1997 and IDEA '04 mandates that the IEP's include "beginning no later than the first IEP to be in effect when the child turns 16 and then updated annually, the following must be included:
    • Appropriate measurable postsecondary goals based upon age-appropriate transition assessments related to training, education, and independent living skills, where appropriate;
