Transitioning Planning & A Discussion of Post Secondary Options


In the life of an individual with a disability, the transitioning stage refers to the period of time when the individual prepares to leave high school and enter the adult world. The “Transitioning Planning & A Discussion of Post-Secondary Options” workshop is designed to help parents demystify and simplify this process; the seminar helps families understand the terms involved, how to ensure that their children is involved in the transitioning planning stage of the process, and how to plan for the child to engage in adult activities, such as living independently, finding employment, and having a fulfilling social, recreational and community life. This workshop will focus on helping individuals residing in the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia areas navigate through this time in their child’s life. As well, parents will learn about the different post-secondary options available to individuals with special needs, and will have an opportunity to discuss examples of post-secondary options available in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia with the workshop coordinator.

All of the presentations are comprehensive, but due to the complex nature of transitioning, the “Transitioning Planning & A Discussion of Post-Secondary Options” seminar is perhaps the most detailed in the series. Attendees will certainly learn a lot from this presentation, and will walk away with a clearer understanding of the transitioning process, and how to help their child with special needs successfully journey through the process.
