This literature review suggests that little has changed regarding parent or student involvement in the IEP transition planning process. However, there have been increasing studies to identify the barriers and broader strategies to involve both families and students in IEP planning and implementation for better student outcomes. Family empowerment and student self-determination, based on strong relationships and good communication with professionals, seems to be one key component to increasing involvement.
