  • Session 1A Transition Planning: Using the IEP Process to Prepare Students for Future Education, Presenter: Cheryl Theis, Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF)

Many youth leave public school uncertain about future education options and/or feeling unprepared for taking the next steps in their educational journey. This workshop focuses on how to use the IEP process effectively for youth with disabilities still in public school (regardless of whether they are on a diploma or certificate track). You will learn about transition planning, the importance of working with the IEP team, and ideas for goal areas and services that will help a student be prepared for future educational opportunities.

  • Session 1B It’s a Whole New World: Accommodations and Accessible Technology, Presenter: Nathaniel Rice, Chabot College

While at first glance it might seem shining, shimmering, and splendid to start college after high school, as a student there are a lot of changes to learn about and guidelines to follow. If you would like to learn about the accommodation process at the college level and how it differs from high school, as well as to learn about the accessible technology and study tools available to help you succeed, come to this presentation by the Chabot DSPS department.

  • Session 1C Welcome to Department of Rehabilitation, Presenter: Raquel Ramsey-Shelton, Department of Rehabilitation (DOR)

Learn how the Department of Rehabilitation can help in your transition from high school to college and become a partner in achieving your goals of employment and independent living.
