Tri-State Webinar: Transition: It’s Never Too Early to Start: Transition Planning Across the Grade Levels


There is a stronger demand than ever to provide functional and “real world” skills to students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other disabilities. Although official transition planning usually begins in high school, outcome studies reveal the need for this planning to begin much earlier in a student’s life. This webinar will focus on how to implement functional and transition focused instruction and curriculum in elementary and middle school environments.

Learner Objectives:

After viewing this webinar, participants will:

  • Name the essential skills students need to be successful in post-school environments
  • Identify a variety of functional curriculum to be used across grade levels.
  • Identify instructional strategies and supports to be utilized in preschool, elementary, middle and high school settings, which will lead to greater success in post-school environments.
