As a teen with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities transitions into their adult years, they often need help learning how to become more independent. It is important for families, teachers and professionals to help the teen acquire self-advocacy skills and also plan for post-high school.
The Munroe-Meyer Institute's Transition Education Series covers multiple topics of transition designed to provide education, resources and discussion.
This session will cover educational requirements for youth transition, practical tips to advocate for employment and post-secondary goals and involving youth in their IEP development.
Transition Coordinators Alice Senseney at Nebraska Department of Education and Sandy Peterson at PTI Nebraska, will present Educational Requirements for Youth Transition from 6:30 - 7:30.
Holly Schwietz, Family Employment Coordinator at PTI Nebraska and Tricia Kingsley, Parent Resource Coordinator at MMI, will present Practical Tips to Advocate for Employment and Post-Secondary Goals and Why Youth Should Be Involved from 7:30 - 8:30.
Attendance is free but seating is limited – Register here.
