I am thrilled to present at the upcoming 5th Annual Connecticut Secondary Transition Symposium: Every Voice Matters. This two-day event brings students and their families together with educators and other professionals to improve secondary transition programming and services for students with disabilities.
My presentation, “Special Education and Transition Planning,” will take place at Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) Alumni Hall on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 11:45 am to 1 pm. This session will help parents understand what services your school may provide to prepare your child for life after high school. In particular, this session will explain the legal requirement that your school district provide transition services to help prepare your child to transition to post-secondary education, employment and independent living. Parents will learn what is required and get tips for navigating the transition process. Click here to register and for more information.
The Symposium is hosted by the CT Department of Developmental Services (DDS), the CT Department of Rehabilitation Services (DORS), the Connecticut Parent Advocacy Center (CPAC), the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE), the State Education Resource Center (SERC), and the University of Connecticut Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD).
