Description

Like flawlessly advancing the football down the field, transition from school into adulthood for students with disabilities is a key to effective special education. In this session, you will learn the intricacies of IDEA requirements for transition assessments and services. What do the IDEA regulations, OSEP letters, and recent court decisions specific for effective coordination of other stakeholders and an individualized approach to postsecondary education or employment? Does the case law suggest that transition is subject to the procedural or substantive FAPE analysis? Where have districts dropped the ball most often, according to the courts? Legal compliance is not just a matter of avoiding litigation losses; it also leads to better post-graduation outcomes for students, which ultimately is the only score that counts.
