Making the Connection: Self-Determination & Post-Secondary Success

Participants will gain knowledge and participate in educator practices used to develop student leadership in Admission, Review and Dismissal Committee (ADRC) meetings, and report increase in student knowledge-based skills related to participating 8th grade students in IEP development at ARDC meetings. This three-part workshop will first explain to 8th grade educators the importance of self-determination as a critical set of skills for school and postschool success. Second, educators will learn on-line and paper/pencil assessments that have ample validity evidence to assess critical self-determination skills as part of each student’s transition assessment battery. Third, educators will learn and explore no-cost, evidenced-based materials to teach students critical skills to (a) create postsecondary and annual transition goals together with their family and their educational planning team, (b) become actively engaged in their educational planning process and meetings, and (c) actively participate in attaining annual transition and other educational annual goals. Last, educators will create a plan to implement assessment and instructional materials with their students.
