Transition Training [WORKING TOGETHER SERIES]
This workshop will address the transition planning and services required for youth with disabilities ages 14-22 and will focus on the transition special education services needed to prepare youth for employment, independent living, and further education. This training will also address compensatory services still available, and how to ensure districts fully address students’ transition needs. Using case examples, parents and professionals will learn strategies that can help ensure students receive important transition services required by special education law. The workshop will also provide information about the transition to the adult human service system, including Chapter 688, the state law that helps plan for youth with disabilities after they leave school.
