Navigating the Transition into Adult Services
Presented by Julie Collison, M. ED., Transition Coordinator Monarch Center for Autism
In this recorded webinar, Julie looks in-depth at adult transition services, especially for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The presentation focuses on the steps required to ensure a smooth transition from school to adulthood, including when the process should begin. The transition process begins earlier than some may think. School professionals will gain an understanding of where to start and how to guide families to the appropriate services. Because the language of transition differs from state to state, the information presented will be as general as possible to address the needs of all participants. Topics include: What is transition? When does the transition process begin? Who do I go to for assistance? Guardianship How can my local Board of Developmental Disabilities help me? What are Vocational Rehabilitation Services? What about college? Residential options.
