    Successful transition processes occur when the planning team is well-informed about the student’s abilities, needs, and available services. Whether moving on to higher education or workforce training, a student may need accessible materials and accessible technologies included in a transition plan to reach postsecondary goals. Where within a transition plan should a team address this? What are the rights and responsibilities of the student? What should students expect from higher education institutions and workforce agencies? Bring your planning teams and join the discussion.

    The National AEM Center invites you to participate in a free professional development opportunity to improve the accessibility of the materials your students use for learning. Many students with disabilities experience barriers to using curriculum materials due to physical, sensory, or learning disabilities. The outcome of the offered professional development is that you will improve your students’ access to the same curriculum materials as their classmates. And, we’re certain that you’ll discover that accessibility improves the quality of your curriculum for all learners. For this activity, we’re targeting educators in their first, second, or third year of teaching; however, we welcome all interested participants. Small groups from the same school or district are encouraged.
