Transition Planning. Revised.
Doyle, Beverly; West-Tackett, Marsha
This document presents one module in a set of training resources for trainers to use with parents and/or professionals serving children with disabilties; focus is on transition planning. The modules stress content and activities that build skills and offer resources to promote parent-professional collaboration. Each training module takes about 2 hours and has eight sections: a publicity flyer, topic narrative, overview, trainer agenda, activities, summary, bibliography, and evaluation. Introductory information explains how to use the modules including conducting a needs assessment, planning the training, selecting the training module, implementation, evaluation, and followup. Objectives of this module are: (1) become familiar with the terms and definitions related to the transition process, (2) identify parents' roles and responsibilities in the transition process, (3) examine local adult service delivery systems, (4) recognize the need for interagency collaboration in successful transition planning, and (5) develop an awareness of the need to include transition elements in the Individualized Education Program. A bibliography identifies eight books, magazines, or other resources. (DB)
