Understand the Key Steps to Help Prepare Students with Disability Transition Out of High School

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) provides eligible children with disabilities with a free public education and related services. Passed in 2004, the law was amended in 2015 to address qualifications of special ed teachers. “IDEA governs how states and public agencies provide early intervention, special education, and related services to more than 6.5 million eligible infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities,” according to the U.S. Department of Education.

Join expert speakers Lori Kirsch Esq. and Hope N. Kirsch Esq., in this session, where you will learn the best practices for developing a post-secondary transition plan that completes the mission of the IDEA to prepare students with disabilities for further education, employment and independent living.

During the session Lori will provide you with tips on how to prepare students for life after high school, and how to assess the special education student for post-secondary transition needs. You will also have the opportunity to learn about the methods to write goals for the transition portion of the IEP.
