Family Involvement is a greater predictor of successful outcomes for youth than income or social status.
So how do we help families recognize the importance of Secondary Transition planning? By training educators and parents the importance of planning for Secondary Transition early on. In Mt. Pleasant on November 16 – 17th the Parent Educator Connection (PEC) sponsored a Secondary Transition Family Planning with GPAEA Transition Coordinators presenting the four PACER Modules for Secondary Transition.
- From Disability to Possibility
- Road to Discovery
- Taking the Next Step
- Exploring and Preparing for Work as an Adult
Participants are able to take the curriculum back to their district and share the information with parents as appropriate. Others have partnered with a parent in hosting a Secondary Transition Night for parents with service providers present. Parents are also sharing the information at Parent Support groups.
If you are interested in attending this 2 day class we will be offering it again in Albia on April 18 & 19, 2016.
