Every year after the year 9 review you should be invited to attend a transition review meeting, where you can review the plan and continue to talk about your son or daughter's options.
Services will continue to be invited to every transition review meeting but you may find that some will only come to the year 9 review and then the final year review. It is good practice for all services to be involved – even if they don't attend every meeting, there should be some contact between meetings or a written report. It is very important that reports cover progress since the last meeting – once you know the date of the review, ask the relevant professionals to provide reports which include updates on actions set from the last transition review.
By the time of the final transition review meeting in your son or daughter's last year of school, you should have a good idea of their plans for the future after school, how it will be funded and what progress they hope to make.
In Northern Ireland, transition starts at year 11, after the young person's 14th birthday.
