Transition Students 14 plus years
All students aged from 14 years have an Individual Transition Plan (ITP). The ITP is a plan that is created with the students, parents, whanau, therapists and teachers to set goals so that the student can work towards their life aspirations. This is the beginning of the transition journey.
