Developing Student Transition Plans: A Collaborative Approach for Middle and High School

This workshop will focus on how educators can collaborate to meet the needs of students to support transition planning. Collaboration is effective when stakeholders from various groups come together and work to meet the needs of students. Students in special education have talents and goals which can provide valuable information for transition from high school to the adult world. However, transitioning from high school can be a stressful thing for many students. During our workshop we will cover ways to support students as they transition, share free resources for teachers and students, and collaborate together to assist teachers to develop transition plans for their students.
