Transition planning is the key to making school relevant to your child’s future life as an adult. BUT it can be a daunting process! Join us to learn how to develop a year-by-year plan for your student with their post-school goals in mind! Participants attending this workshop will:

  • Learn about the backward planning process and the components used to identify activities and services your student needs to support their post-school goals
  •  Identify who needs to be involved in this collaborative process
  • Hear how student’s postsecondary goals for employment, education and independent living are the driving force behind the transition IEP goals
