Planning A Life – Making the Most Out of High School for students with disabilities
Planning a Life is a two day Transition planning conference with information and resources for families, educators and professionals. Topics include:
- Creating a Vision for life beyond High School
- Transition Laws
- Transition assessments
- The MA Transition Planning Form and IEP goals
- Post-Secondary Education and Career preparation
- Community connections
- Family involvement
Transition planning is an ongoing process that starts when a student on an IEP turns 14 and continues throughout their high school and young adult years. Our goal is to build a statewide network of proactive and informed families, educators and professionals working in partnership to develop student focused transition plans.
Planning A Life is scheduled from 8:30am – 4:00pm on a Friday and Saturday three times a year throughout Massachusetts. (check here for conference dates and site locations for the current 2015 – 2016 school year). Registration is required as space is limited. There is a program fee for this conference, limited scholarships are available.
