Massachusetts Chapter 688 of the Acts of 1983, also known as the “turning 22” law, stipulates that students receiving special education who will require continued disability related services upon exiting school (by graduating or turning twenty two years of age, whichever ever occurs first) shall be entitled to formal transitional planning.  As such, M.G.L.c.71B Sec 12-A-C establishes the Bureau of Transitional Planning (BTP).  The primary function of the BTP is to coordinate and monitor implementation of the formal transition planning process.
