What is the Carbon Lehigh Transition Coordinating Council (CLTCC)?

The local TCC disseminates transition information, provides training for students, parents, educators, and service providers on transition issues, and develops and maintains local transition interagency agreements.
Why are transition services provided?
Congress and the Pennsylvania legislature have recognized the needs of young people with disabilities by developing and passing a series of laws and regulations to mandate and facilitate transition services, such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and others.
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;
  • Transition services needed to assist the child in reaching those goals, including courses of study; and
