Northborough: Local special education PACS present Transition Planning Process workshop

January 9, 2014

| Free

Northborough – The special education PACS of Northborough/Southborough, Hudson, and Westborough invite you to “Turning 14, An Introduction to the Transition Planning Process: A Workshop for Parents and Professionals.” The workshop will be held Thursday, Jan. 9, from 6 – 8 p.m., in the Black Box Theater at Algonquin Regional High School, 79 Bartlett St., Northborough. (Use the main rotunda entrance and follow signs.)

Massachusetts law requires that Transition planning must begin at age 14 and continue throughout the high school years as students prepare to journey into a full and inclusive adult life. Coordinated and continuous transition preparation promotes better post school outcomes for students with disabilities. The program is appropriate for anyone with a child who will require transition planning within the next two years.

The introductory Transition workshop will address development of self-advocacy and self-determination skills to support the student's vision; how Transition assessments identify students” strengths and interests, as well as areas of academic and functional skill development needed to support Transition goals; and how the Transition Planning Form guides the conversation to develop Transition goals, which lead to meaningful opportunities in education, training, employment and independent living.

To ensure there are enough presentation copies, please RSVP from the link at www.nspac.org. Updates or weather related cancellations will be posted to the website.
