Implementing a Collaborative Team Model in the Delivery of Transition Services.
Guillory, Joan; And Others
These materials present information on implementing a collaborative team model in the delivery of transition services to students with disabilities. The materials provide charts and forms outlining strategies to be used by a local interagency transition team to assess its existing level of collaboration, to conceptualize its jointly endorsed long-term vision, and to define several levels of outcome measures. This self-study covers the following areas: organizational structure; operating procedures; collaborative process; transition planning process; student instruction and consumer support; family outreach and support; self-determination and advocacy; negotiation of adult outcomes; and evaluation of transition services. The materials also review the process to be used by a local interagency transition team to develop action plans around multiple outcome levels--interagency, agency, and students. The collaborative model presented is intended to equip collaborative transition teams to address two levels of service delivery: (1) student and consumer outcomes, and (2) system development and support. Descriptions of local examples of collaborative programs are attached, as is a summary of the presentation. (DB)
