Feedback form is now closed.
Summary:
Student-Focused Planning and Student Development are two key aspects of high quality transition planning for students with IEPs. For students with autism, we believe that the areas of (a) social skills, (b) self-awareness, (c) executive functioning skills, and (d) daily living skills are critical for preparation for an interdependent life in adulthood. Come learn about our model for assessing these key areas and brainstorm goals and activities that will help transition-age youth with ASD build these critical functional skills.

Learning Objectives:
1. Participants will be able to identify the components of a best-practice model for transition planning.
2. Participants will be able to discuss key skill domains that are critical to address in developing goals for the Transition Plan in the IEP.
3. Participants will be able to match transition goals with contexts and activities that are relevant and meaningful for students and their families.
