Event description

Description

Presenter: Associate Professor Iva Strnadová
Dates: 5 April 2017
Times: 9am-4pm

Post school outcomes for students with disabilities remain dismally poor. Research shows that effective transition planning for this population increases the chances for successful employment, engagement with further education, community involvement, and independent life. Student and family centred transition planning ensures that the students’ and family’s strengths, priorities and desires are taken into account.

This workshop will provide participants with a framework and associated tools to implement effective student and family centred transition planning. Participants will learn about research-based transition practices, under the umbrellas of Kohler’s Taxonomy for Transition Programming and Bronfenbrenner’s ecological model. Instruction and tools will be provided in the areas of transition assessment, transition planning, self-determination development, and development of self-advocacy skills. Participants will engage with the current research in the field and use the resulting information to workshop a mock transition plan.

This professional learning event will provide participants with practical knowledge of research-based transition practices, with a focus on student-centred transition planning and family-focused transition planning. They will have the opportunity to apply these skills by role-playing a transition planning meeting and creating a mock transition plan.
