You may also subscribe to any or all of the other regional Special Ed Task Force lists, but you will need to do so one at a time.

Getting Ready for the Next Step:
Preparing Students to Build Independence, Self-Advocacy Skills, & Transition

Thursday, February 28, 2019
Registration: 9:30 am – 10:00 am 
Program: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

It is important to make sure that looking down the road does not get lost in the shuffle of the day to day planning for students with disabilities.  Understanding what comes next is essential to ensure that steps are in place to prepare students to be able to advocate for themselves, to be independent and to recognize and be able to access supports and services when needed.
