Event Details

*This is a one (1) day event - Friday, March 3, 2017


Audience: High School; General and Special Education Teachers and Administrators, and BRS/DORS Counselors

 

Presenter:  Nicholas Gelbar, UCONN UCEDD and MIssy Wrigley, SERC Consultant

Description:  

To address Connecticut’s current needs in secondary transition, the CT State Transition Task Force has identified 16 key areas that were determined to be critical to the post-school success of any student with a disability. These key areas are referred to as the CT CORE Transition Skills. In January 2016, the following skill was added: To the maximum extent possible, Each Student with a disability will be able to utilize effective self-determination skills including areas such as: choice-making, problem solving, goal-setting, communication, and self-advocacy.

In addition, the passage of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) has led to Connecticut’s development of a new transition program for students enrolled in high school ages 16-21. This Level Up program has incorporated the instruction of self-advocacy as part of its pre-employment transition services.

During this professional learning opportunity, participants will be introduced to a number of instructional and assessment strategies that will enable teachers and BRS/DORS counselors from Connecticut’s Bureau of Rehabilitation Services/Department of Rehabilitation Services (BRS/DORS) to promote student self-determination.
