Online Webinar – Youth Transition Series

August 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Event Flyer

My child is approaching 12, now what?

Why does the Transition Individual Educational Plan (TIEP) look different that my child’s previous IEPs? What is a Post Secondary Goal, how is it different from my child’s previous IEP?

Will there still be domain goals in the TIEP (Transition Individualized Education Plan)?

Why is it important to know about Post Secondary Transition? How does a Transition IEP prepare my child for life after high school? Who else might at the IEP table now? (**sneak peek** “VR” also known as Vocational Rehabilitation could be a great addition to your youth’s Transition Team; http://www.rehabworks.org/stw_FAQs.shtml).

To answer some of these questions, this month, our workshops will focus on transition for youth. Transition planning is an ongoing process that begins at age 12 to prepare students with disabilities for life after high school. It requires planning, skill development, and a network of support. Join us in this workshop as we explore the transition planning process for youth living with disabilities.

Part III: Supported Decision-Making

Thursday, Aug. 26th, 4pm

This is an online event.

Imagine having your capacity to make decisions, sign contracts, vote, defend your rights in court or choose medical treatments taken away simply because you have a disability. For many persons with disabilities, this is a fact of life, and the consequences can be grave. When individuals lack the legal capacity to act, they are not only robbed of their right to equal recognition before the law, they are also robbed of their ability to defend and enjoy other human rights. Guardians and tutors acting on behalf of persons with disabilities sometimes fail to act in the interests of the individual they are representing; worse, they sometimes abuse their positions of authority, violating the rights of others.
