Join us for a FREE webinar on preparing students with special needs for on-the-job success!
According to recent research, students with disabilities are significantly more likely to be unemployed or without educational plans in the first two years after high school than their general education peers. Transition planning, required by federal law to begin at the age of 14, is crucial for preparing students for life beyond school.
In this FREE webinar, Rethink’s Maria Wilcox will discuss techniques for preparing students for success once the school bus stops coming–whether it’s a summer job or post-secondary employment.
Participants in this webinar will leave with:
- specific skills to teach students to help them prepare for employment
- strategies for helping students generalize skills they learn at school for application in the workplace
- ideas for how to make transition planning meaningful and effective
