Limited Capacity seats available

In the Special Education Transition process, students should receive 5-7 of supports and services designed to help them progress toward independent, adult lives. Yet, a recent survey showed that schools and school personnel are the number one source of referrals for guardianship proceedings - which too often result in young adults having their rights stripped away and being denied the opportunity to progress. This presentation will provide practical information and strategies to access appropriate Transition supports and services designed to access and implement Supported Decision-Making processes designed to increase Self-Determination and progress toward true independence and inclusive adult living. OBJECTIVES: (1) Understand what should be in an appropriate Special Education Transition Plan (2) Understand how Transition Planning can provide independent living skills, decision-making supports, and other services and supports needed to help young adults progress toward inclusive, independent lives (3) Understand how Supported Decision-Making can increase self determination and improve life outcomes (4) Learn practical strategies for accessing and implementing Supported Decision-Making in the Transition Planning process and beyond.
