"Transition to Adulthood" will be presented from 9:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. This workshop will provide parents with Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, IDEA, transition requirements for a student with a disability preparing for life after high school. We will cover important aspects of transition planning, information typically included in a transition plan, how transition plans are developed and by whom, and resources for more information on transition.
"Solving the Employment Puzzle for Youth with Disabilities" will be presented from 10:45 a.m. to noon. This workshop will provide parents and youth with practical, hands-on strategies to help reach a student's employment-related transition goals. Participants will learn about post-secondary services that are available and how to obtain them.
