Description: Fostering independence is essential in preparing students with IEP’s for their next step toward successful transition in their educational journey and post-secondary options.  Independence begins in Pre-K and is a critical component of every step in their classroom experience. Providing students with the tools to demonstrate independence is part of the skills that need to be explicitly taught.  

Disability resource coordinators from local post-secondary institutions shared three anchors for a successful transition to living independently.   Personal Leadership includes self-advocacy for individual learning needs and appropriate supports. Self-regulation, self-reflection, setting goals - academic and behavior are all components of Personal Leadership.   Assistive Technology literacy means understanding the resources available and being able to access supports as appropriate. Web resources, apps, and other assistive technology tools will be explored for a range of needs around literacy, writing, note-taking, and organization.  Community Building means being a part of something beyond academics in the classroom. Social capital builds confidence and leads to greater success. Collaboration and community include skills within the classroom, within the school, and within the larger community working collaboratively with peers for a greater purpose.

Speech-Language Pathologists will have job-alike time to focus on specific communication issues around areas of Personal Leadership, Assistive Tech, and Collaborative/Community COmmunication skills, as well as DPI updates for speech and language and case-specific discussion/ problem-solving.

It's that time of the year where the unpredictable weather outdoors makes our training rooms either too cold or too warm. Training room temperatures are controlled offsite and often take time before the adjustment is noticed. We suggest bringing a sweater, wearing close-toed shoes and/or dressing in layers to assure you are as comfortable as possible while at our facility.
