Kohler, Paula D.; Field, Sharon; Izzo, Margo; Johnson, John
This document offers six one-day workshops intended to help state, regional, and local organizations develop the knowledge and skills of educators and others providing transition services to young people with disabilities. Workshop content is based on the "Taxonomy for Transition Programming," a model of effective transition practices based on transition-related research and exemplary transition practices. Following an overview of the workshop series, the first workshop covers research findings about the post-school outcomes of students, transition-related legislation, and transition models, especially Kohler's "Taxonomy". The other five workshops are: (1) student-focused planning, (2) student development, (3) interagency collaboration, (4) family involvement, and (5) program structures. Each workshop features the following information: the workshop purpose, overview, and objectives; an agenda; materials and equipment needed to conduct the workshop; resources used to develop the workshop; content for each topic on the agenda; and overhead and handout masters. (Individual sections contain references.) (DB)
