Join Julie Collison, M.Ed., Transition Coordinator and Middle School/High School Supervisor at Monarch Center for Autism; and Rachel Lloyd, M.S.Ed., Transition Education Program Director at Monarch Center for Autism, for this transition planning edWebinar which will focus on creating transition-driven, person-centered IEPs. The transition process begins earlier than one may think. Attendees will gain an understanding of how to write transition- and person-centered IEPs with an in-depth look at transition sections of the IEP, as well as how to create future planning statements as an IEP team. Attendees will also learn which agencies to involve in transition planning and when to involve them.

The language of transition planning and IEPs differ from state to state, and sometimes from county to county. This training will be as general as possible to address the needs of all participants. Topics will include:

  • When does the transition process begin?
  • What should a transition-focused IEP look like?
  • What does it mean to write a person-centered IEP?
  • Writing a person-centered IEP for students with more significant needs.
  • An in-depth look at transition sections of an IEP.
  • Which agencies should be involved in transition planning?
  • When should agencies become involved and begin attending IEP meetings?
