"Transition from School to Adult Life - Using the IEP to Create Success."

Leslie Hughes, Massachusetts Advocates for Children

  • When: Wednesday October 7, 2020 from 6-7:30 p.m.
  • Where: Virtually in Zoom.

This event is free and open to the public.

This workshop will address the transition planning and services required for youth with disabilities ages 14-22. The training will focus on both the transition special education services which prepare youth for employment, independent living and further education and discuss mechanisms to plan for services students may require when they exit special education as well as transition to the adult human service system. Through the use of case examples, parents and professionals will learn strategies that may help students receive important transition services mandated by special education laws. Parents and professionals will also gain an understanding on Chapter 688, the federal law that helps plan for youth with disabilities after they leave.

This event is co-sponsored by the Mass. Department of Developmental Services, the UMass Lowell Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis and Autism Studies, and the UMass Lowell Interdisciplinary Minor in Disability Studies.
