The transition plan should clearly set out your son or daughter's ideas and hopes for the future and cover all aspects of life, not just which college or service they may be moving on to. Any health, housing or social care needs should be clearly stated, and the plan should set out what each service will do, and when, in order to meet these needs.
It is important that the plan is based on what the young person thinks is important and does not just focus on existing available services. It is also vital that the transition plan covers money and benefits and ways of funding the services or support that you son or daughter will need as an adult.
Ask for a copy of the agreed actions to come out of the transition review. The transition plan should say what needs to happen, the name of the person who will do the action and when it will be done by. This keeps people accountable.
