Supporting a student throughout their educational journey is only part of the job that educators do for students receiving special education services. Federal law and state guidelines mandate that our educational programming support a student through their transition to postsecondary and support their future outcomes.

In this course from Noodle Nook, Ayo Jones outlines ways to prepare students, parents, and your special education department for secondary transition. She provides concrete steps that need to be taken to ensure a student has the best chance at postsecondary success.

This session is part of the Special Education Self-Assessment Series. The series is all about self-evaluation and gaining a better understanding of things you should do to meet your legally mandated obligations for supporting your SPED students.

In this 30-minute course, you will learn:

  • How to prepare parents for secondary transition
  • How to prepare students for secondary transition
