About this Event
Does it seem too early to think about what will happen when a child graduates from high school? It’s not! Parents and professionals are encouraged to begin early in thinking about transition for youth with CAS and other speech/language disabilities. While age 14 is suggested as the “formal” time to begin transition planning, those concerned with middle school students will also benefit from exploring this topic. This session will describe the current education law regarding post-school transition for youth with disabilities. Discussion of transition related outcomes of higher education, employment, and community/independent living will be reviewed. Specific suggestions and tips will be provided for how to prepare young people with speech/language disabilities for life after high school.
