In this article, the authors present the results of a survey of interagency transition council members that assessed familiarity with health care transition (HCT) and the inclusion of HCT-related goals in individualized educational plans (IEP). School personnel, agency representatives, and family members completed a total of 187 surveys. Respondents reported limited knowledge of HCT, and HCT-related issues were often not addressed through school-based transition activities. Respondents, however, reported a high level of interest in learning more about the issue of HCT. Implications of this research include the need to provide additional training to schools, agency representatives, and family members regarding the importance of expanding current educational transition practices to include HCT.
