Parents of the Panhandle Information Network (POPIN) and the Second Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program are hosting a training of interest to volunteer guardians ad litem and staff.

Join us on Wednesday, February 25 and Thursday, February 26, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at our offices on Thomasville Road for Transition IEP Planning for Life After High School.

Change is a major part of life. There is no greater transition than moving from high school to college, employment and beyond. When a child reaches age fourteen, the individualized education program (IEP) team must identify the transition service needs for these important changes. This training will provide the key components needed to write an effective transition IEP that helps prepare our children for a successful transition from high school to the world of adulthood.

Transitioning from high school to young adulthood is an important stage for any teenager, but for a teenager with a disability, this requires strategic planning that includes goal setting, special activities and interagency collaborations. This training will provide helpful tips and tools that help you identify a teen's individual needs, strengths, skills and interests needed for transition planning. Learn about the transition planning process and how to write a transition IEP that outlines goals that will help to develop a teenager's vocational and career skills, as well as the ability to live independently.

The training will be presented by Kathy Powell, Program Director of the Parents of the Panhandle Information Network, a program of the Family Network on Disabilities.

Participants may receive four (4) hours of continuing education credit. Afterward, report your hours quickly and easily using our eForm.

The training is free. You can download the event flyer and register with the event contact below.
