Upon completion, participants will be able to:
After a brief introduction to the Center for Change in Transition Services, Module 1 begins with an overview of transition planning for students with disabilities. It identifies the four performance indicators for secondary transition and the role that quality Individual Education Programs (IEPs) play in preparing students for post-school success. Then it explores the format of traditional IEP meetings and what it means to include students’ voices in those meetings. It highlights the importance of self-determination and other benefits of increased student participation in their IEPs. Finally, it outlines four steps for preparing students to be involved in their IEP meeting.
Module 6 begins by exploring what student involvement in the IEP looks like in elementary years, middle school years, and high school years. It introduces a tool for thinking about approaching complex change. And finally, the IEP Continuum from Module 1 is revisited to set goals for next steps.
