The day will feature workshops and activities and is open to students with intellectual disabilities, their families, teachers, education-techs, case managers, and more. Students will receive an SJC t-shirt; parents and professionals will receive packets with resources as well as contact hours certificates. A lakeside picnic lunch will be provided for attendees.
The day will be broken into three tracks: professional, parent, and student.
- Preparing Students for a Post Secondary College Program
- IEP goals for Post-Secondary prep, fading supports, etc.
- Technology for Transition
- Preparing Students and Families for a Post Secondary College Program
- What dreams do we have for our children? What dreams do they have for themselves? How can we best support them, and prepare them for the Post-Secondary world? What skills do they need? How is post-secondary education different from K-12 education?
- Navigating Transition and Adult Services
Students will spend the morning in small groups with SJC students exploring campus through a fun filled scavenger hunt. Not only will they visit many of the key spots around campus, they’ll engage in activities themed around planning, goal setting and self-advocacy.
