We all work so hard to do our best for students, though one day they will graduate and leave us. What can we do to best prepare them for transition? This webinar is a discussion of some of the differences between school and life after graduation (IDEA vs. ADA), some of the IEP pieces we have a duty to complete (Indicator 13), and many resources which are there to help us bring our students closer to independence. This all leads to the tool of the QIAT-PS which can help you start meaningful discussions about the role Assistive Technology will play when that final graduation comes.
This webinar will review the laws pertaining to transition, evidence of what difficulties students have following graduation, areas of skills which can help student’s increase success, and the re-development of the QIAT-PS tool to build capacity and increase student self-determination and assistive technology skills for a greater chance of future success.
As a result of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify the levels and types of post-secondary services available at the college level.
- Understand the differences between IDEA and ADA and how that shapes high school service delivery.
- Learn three tools to utilize to promote successful collegiate transition.
- Discuss the updates to the QIAT-PS and name one way it can help drive conversations and set goals with your students.
