These ITPs would apply to an individual until they turn 26 years old, and be reviewed and updated every year. ITPs are created in face-to-face meetings with the administrative support staff in charge of ITPs. There, each developmentally disabled youth has his or her individual needs and goals for the future assessed. Through the many collaborations necessary to create every ITP, the bill hopes to streamline the channels of communication between state educational agencies and state intellectual and developmental disability agencies.
