Building Measurable & Supportive TILPS
Case plans and documents are living documents
Plans don’t always remain the same and TILP can
be adjusted to meet short term needs
Meet the youth where they are in order to get best
Identify other people who can be invited into
transition planning i.e. who else can join the team?
Change the conversation with a focus on
Advisor vs. Case Management
Finds ways to help the youth to take control over
case planning over time BUT be mindful that change
doesn’t happen overnight.
◦ Example: Utilize SILP assessment even if youth isn’t
“ready” as it can serve as motivation and create a structured
discussion for goal setting
Building on Strengths and
90-day Exit Transition Plan
◦ WIC 16501.1(f)(16)
Held ninety (90) days prior to the youth’s 18th birthday, regardless of
whether or not the youth is planning on exiting care
◦ Developed w/youth and be as personalized and detailed as the youth directs
◦ Conference should include: ILP/TC, CSW, Supportive adults, Service
◦ Plan covers:
Options for housing, health insurance, education, local opportunities for
mentors and continuing support services & workforce and employment
Information regarding the advance health care directive form
Information regarding any current applications for SSI and Special
Juvenile Immigration Status.
Re-imagine the 90 day transition conference.
◦ Get creative with how the meeting is conducted by more technology
tools and social media
Be present when meeting with youth.
Create a space that is youth-centered vs. a space
based on a checklist.
Transition planning can happen in many different ways. It
can be a preventive tool instead of a reactionary tool.
Build off the strengths of the youth, especially when it is
evident that the youth is struggling and has lost all
Ensure opportunities to discuss follow-up takes place
proceeding the meeting for those assigned to different task
Youth who are clearly informed of what their role
is for the meeting tend to be more involved in the
transition planning conference.
As a CLC Peer Advocate I believe transitioning
planning should be happening all the time even
outside of the 90-day transition conference

LA County Overview: Tricia Mosher Consulting www.tmoshe
Purpose is to help youth:
• anticipate what teaming will look like so that they can
choose whether this is a process
that they want to use.
• think through the agenda and prepare to lead the
meeting through introductions, statement of goal,
youth’s story, and appreciation of strengths and needs.
• know the ‘non-negotiables’ ahead of time
• identify a team that can help them consider and make
changes so that they are safe, nurtured, and
Insure that the youth has invited their team prior to
contacting team members.
Prepare all team members: professionals and informal
Do not share details of the case: only share the youth goal
in the youth’s words
Insure that the invited team supports the goal and can
commit to being a team member
Include team members by phone or letter if they cannot
attend the full meeting in person.
