About this event

Transition University will offer a 5-session self-paced online series to help parents/guardians navigate the transition process for their school age child and prepare for the adult world.

Life is full of transitions. For families of children with disabilities thinking about the future can bring mixed emotions. Some families are just trying to make it through day-to-day challenges and might not feel they have the energy to think about what happens after high school. Others may want to plan for that transition, but are confused by unfamiliar language, complex steps, and the many agencies that may be involved in adult services.

Join us for this FREE 5-week SELF-PACED online course that focuses on providing parent-friendly transition information to help make transition planning easier. This course is designed for parents/caregivers of elementary, middle or high school students that receive special education services, but is open to everyone.  The goal is to share factual information on transition services and to help make the transition from school services to the adult services world less confusing.

Topics covered in this course will include:-What is Transition and Why is it Important? -Transition Services in the IEP -Supported Decision Making, Power of Attorney, Guardianship and Age of Majority -Future planning including Special Needs Trusts, ABLE accounts and Letters of Intent-Transitioning into Independent Living (employment, further education, housing, etc.) -Connecting to Your Community and to Adult Services- and much more!

The course begins the evening of October 10, 2021  and will be open through November 30, 2021 at 5pm.

Each week a new session of the course will open on Saturday evening and will be open the remainder of the course.

Sessions contain video content, written content, discussion opportunities and resources.
