Making a Smooth Transition from High School to Adult Living: Successful Collaboration

All students and their families benefit from collaboration — teamwork, group effort, and cooperation — between family, school, and others as they make the transition to adult life. Students with disabilities often require extra collaboration and support to achieve their employment, educational, and independent living goals, sometimes for their entire lives. This 2012 webinar for parents of youth with disabilities explores how to use the concept of collaboration to ensure their son or daughter’s transition to adulthood is as smooth as possible. Originally developed for Minnesota families, most content is relevant to families residing in other states as well. Presenters: Carolyn Anderson, PACER Center | Barb Ziemke, PACER Center | Sean Roy, PACER Center.
