Planning for the Future Checklist


21 and Able (an initiative of the United Way of Allegheny County) in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education, PaTTAN, local school districts, family members, youth, and community agencies created the Planning for the Future Checklist .

The checklist  is designed to support youth with disabilities, as well as their family and IEP team members, to ensure they are reviewing all aspects of transition planning at age appropriate intervals.

  • The checklist is available in both English and Spanish .

  • The checklist is also available as an app on the Android and iPhone platforms – keywords: PA Planning for the Future.

The following  Planning for the Future Checklist Videos depict how the checklist could be utilized during an IEP meeting. (Click on the video screens, below, to start the streaming media files.)
