Clarity and Order for Special Education Success

For 18-22 Transition Coordinators

Students beyond 12th grade should not be disengaged from their community.

What does 18-22 transition look like in your school district?
How is funding braided to maximize opportunities for students in post-secondary transition?
How connected are you to inclusive higher education opportunities for your students?
How do you individualize each students program and schedule?
What does support and experiences for employment look like?

This two-day professional learning event is designed for Transition Coordinators and Transition Teachers for students aged 18-22. Participants will be guided through a series of best practices which include programs such as Project SEARCH and Inclusive Higher Education. Participants will be immersed in interactive dialogue with other post-secondary colleagues to analyze their support and services based on 21 elements in the areas of climate structure and performance of programming beyond 12th grade. 

The Golden Ticket 18-22/Transition Coordinator professional learning events are designed for post-secondary teachers and transition coordinators. We help you to analyze your program design as it relates to the symbiotic path to adult success for your students with IDD. We help you objectively assess your teaching and your case management. We will celebrate the areas where you are succeeding and highlight areas that are your opportunities for growth. You'll collaborate with 18-22 teachers and transition coordinators from different regions of the country in a therapeutic environment. You will learn about and exchange ideas in providing a robust continuum of services for the students beyond 12th grade. You will also learn the importance of interagency collaboration and how to involve outside agencies in your transition planning. This event also presents a refreshing opportunity to get rejuvenated while reconsidering how you provide services and programming for students 18-22. You will leave with a review, a plan for improvement and new ideas for ensuring our students and families exit with a connected plan.
