Transition is the time for students with and without disabilities to plan and pursue their future post-school goals. What can we do to best prepare all students with the skills, services, and supports they need to become successfully employed? How can we build on the successes of our current activities to explore unique and creative employment opportunities that benefit all students including those with significant support needs? What are ways we can contribute to enhancing adult employment services and making that critically important job match?
This edWebinar will describe strategies for exploring passions, engaging employers, customizing the placement process, and facilitating training and support to promote job success. The goal of the presentation is to share practical strategies for preparing students with a wide range of disabilities for employment before or after they graduate. Attendees will learn about the roles and responsibilities of education and adult employment services, best practices for educators to use in teaching students about work and gaining the essential skills that will assist them with becoming gainfully employed, and tools to help educators in planning and implementing effective transition services leading to positive post-school outcomes. By the end of the edWebinar, attendees will:
Gain an overview of the transition process
Understand effective transition to employment practices
Describe strategies and tools for implementing transition to employment services
Demonstrate knowledge of employment services and supports
This presentation will be of interest to middle and high school teachers, school and district leaders, rehabilitation counselors, and adult vocational personnel. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
