Event Details

 

Transition Academy is the first event to bring teachers and parents together in the Greater New Orleans region to discuss solutions and strategies to create effective transition opportunities for children with disabilities. At Transition Academy, parents and educators will split into two groups. Parents will learn how transition planning helps prepare young people for their futures – how it helps them develop the skills they need to proceed onto further education or employment programs after high school. This workshop will inform parents of all the opportunities, supports and services needed for their child to be gainfully employed after high school.

 

Educators will focus on ITP case studies, how to locate online resources, and how to create an effective Individualized Transition Plan using one of their own ITPs from class. We are asking teachers to bring an actual ITP with the personal information blacked out in order to work on it during the breakout sessions.

 

Then parents and teachers will come back together for a free lunch and special viewing of the incredible documentary: Best Kept Secret.

 

Transition-focused education has the goal of preparing students for success in their post-school lives. This Professional Development workshop will teach educators how to include transition into their classroom curriculums to ensure all students succeed.
