Course Description
Transition from school to adulthood is marked as a critical time for students with disabilities. For students to have successful postsecondary outcomes, planning for that transition requires a process that promotes movement to postsecondary environments which include postsecondary education, vocational training, integrated employment (including supported employment), continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, or community participation. Successful outcomes happen when the student’s needs, preferences and interests are the foundation for transition planning. This foundation blended in with appropriate instruction, related services, assistive technology, collaboration with community organizations and agencies, development of employment and other post-school objectives, and when appropriate, the acquisition of daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation make for successful transitions to adulthood. The purpose of the Statewide Transition Planning Process Technical Assistance is to provide systems with guidance and support to look at transition as a process, not an event and to re-examine their process for transitioning students to adulthood.

Registration will begin at 8:30 AM.
