Limited Capacity seats available

While a plethora of research on transition education exists, much less researched are "soft" outcomes. Within our program, some of the most profound outcomes have been organic; mediated by context. Being located on a college, many authentic and age-appropriate experiences involving college and transition students have emerged unscripted. We draw upon narratives of pre-service teachers' transformative understandings of transition and youth with significant disabilities.

Learning Objectives:
• This presentation will discuss the many positive outcomes that a transition program has on a university campus and university student life.
• Participants will gain some insight in the “soft” yet profoundly moving outcomes that CPP participants and their University peers mutually enjoy.
• The presenters will raise critical questions about participation and integration of persons with significantly disabling conditions.
• This presentation will explore the benefits of age-appropriate programming and help participants gain a better understanding of ways to implement this type of program in their community and/or local college campus.
