Upcoming Event!

Regional Meetings for Transition Service Providers for 18-21 Year Olds

The purpose is to build the capacity of those who work with transition-aged youth by providing an opportunity for providers to network and collaborate with each other, as well as share resources, strategies, best practices, and brainstorm solutions to issues that impact their local district/administrative unit.  Through these meetings, participants are kept up-to-date on changes in federal and state policies and practices that effect transition services and programming that directly influence the post school outcomes of students with disabilities.
