Secondary Transition 101 Session 1: Legal & Theoretical Background of Secondary Transition

Next Date: 
Thursday, October 29, 2020 -
4:00pm to 5:00pm


Secondary Transition 101 is comprised of four synchronous 1.5 hour, seminar sessions, each focusing on a different aspect of the Secondary Transition process. This online professional development series will be offered twice this fall. It is designed to build special educators’ capacity to develop and implement high-quality Individualized Transition Plans (ITPs) for transition-age youth. The series includes an emphasis on virtual transition planning, assessments, and services to accommodate individual needs during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  Participants will get the opportunity to try out some online tools to support student transition programming, while maintaining a safe social distance. These online sessions are hosted in collaboration with SchoolTalk, Inc. and the OSSE.

All participants are required to complete Session 1 before advancing to additional modules. You will receive 1.5 PLUs for Module 1 and 1.5 PLUs for each additional module you complete.

In order to receive PLUs, you must register for each module you wish to complete.

Session 1: Legal & Theoretical Background of Secondary Transition

Participants will:

  • Familiarize themselves with post-secondary outcomes of students with disabilities in DC and across the US
  • Understand the federal and local laws, theory, and research that support the IDEA’s secondary transition mandate
