• A Person-Centered Approach to the Transition IEP, College, Career and Civic Life

  • Person-centered planning for transition is key to ensuring positive post-secondary outcomes for youth with disabilities. Assessment and reflection allow a student to recognize her unique talents, interests, values and personality styles. This information is then used to assist the student to explore careers and plan for her future. The process is driven by the student based on her interests and strengths, and she remains the center of the planning process. Participants will explore evidence-based resources and strategies for organizing, developing, and monitoring a meaningful student-led transition program. This workshop will assist LEAs/districts in developing and delivering person-centered transition planning, from transition assessment resources to organizing school and community-based activities, to assist students in planning for college, career and civic life after high school. Based on Guideposts for Success from the National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability.
    Participants will be able to:

    • Understand the components of a student-centered transition program
    • Access evidence-based resources and strategies for organizing, and monitoring a person-centered transition program
