Our Great Prairie AEA Parent-Educator and Transition Coordinators held a Secondary Transition Family Planning for Educators and Parents, in Ottumwa on November 10 & 11th. This 2-day workshop was intended to help teachers and parents learn how to assist parents in their understanding of the special education transition process in Iowa and how to participate effectively.
The course will be offered again April 8th & 9th, 2015 at the GPAEA office in Burlington. Participants will be provided information, resources and a supportive environment to meet Community Service Providers and ask questions about the transition process. Participants will receive four parent transition planning modules created by the Iowa Department of Education and PACER:
- From Disability to Possibility: The Power of High Expectations in Transition Planning
- Road to Discovery Transition to Adult Living, Learning and Working
- Taking the Next Step: Planning for Success in Post-Secondary Education
- Exploring and Preparing for Work as an Adult
