Event Details

Join us on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at 9:00 am for a FREE workshop on IEP Transition Services in Special Education.

Transition is the process students and their families use to prepare for life after high school, to identify outcomes, and to plan community and school experiences to ensure that the student acquires the knowledge and skills to achieve their goals.  Transition planning is a process mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) for all students who have an Individualized Education Program (IEP).   In Virginia, the IEP must include transition planning and services by age 14.  Therefore, it is important for parents of middle school, high school, and even elementary school students to understand transition services.

This workshop will review the transition requirements that are in IDEA.  The presenter will also share specific information on what parents/guardians really need to understand about transition services to ensure thoughtful planning and implementation of individualized programs.

This workshop is intended for:

- parents/guardians of individuals with developmental disabilities,
- providers, and/or
- educators.
