Road to Independence: Assistive Technology in Transition Planning for Students with Complex Support Needs
March 30 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm MST
Assistive Technology (AT) devices and services can improve the ability of people with disabilities to participate independently in post-school settings, including employment and education. There are many possibilities when it comes to AT, but there is no “one size fits all.” Therefore, AT options need to be individualized and based on a student’s personal needs and preferences. It is during their high school years that students with disabilities need to explore, use, and become proficient with the AT tools that will benefit them in their post-school lives. If AT is included in the transition section portion of their IEPs and used to support their measurable postsecondary goals, students with disabilities will be more prepared for success when they move on to the next phase of life. Join us as we discuss the critical role Assistive Technology plays in that transition from high school to adulthood for students with Complex Support Needs.
