Summary

This brief provides information to parents of students with disabilities on preparing students for reaching the age of majority and assuming responsibility for their education and life choices. It begins by reviewing regulations under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act that give states the authority to elect to transfer educational decision-making rights to students at the age of majority. The rights that transfer in most states are listed and differences between states are noted. Guidelines for teaching children how to make decisions are then provided and include: include your child in purchasing decisions, discuss important decision such as vacation plans and major purchases as a family, practice with your child what he or she should do if lost, encourage your child to participate in planning his Individualized Education Program (IEP), role-play IEP meetings, help your child develop good working relationships with school personnel, do not allow educators to pressure your child into making decisions he is not capable of handling, avoid being overprotective, and stay involved even after you are no longer the primary participant in the development of your childs IEP. The brief also includes information on the transfer of rights, guardianship, and graduation. (CR)
