Johanne Pino, Project Coordinator at Massachusetts Advocates for Children, will be joining Communitas, The Arc of Greater Haverhill Newburyport, Bridgewell, & The Cambodian Mutual Assistance Association for a virtual Transition Training Workshop.

This Transition Training Workshop will address transition planning and services required for youth with disabilities ages 14-22 and will focus on the transition special education services needed to prepare youth for employment, independent living, and further education. This training will also address compensatory services still available, and how to ensure districts fully address students’ transition needs.

Using case examples, parents and professionals will learn strategies that can help ensure students receive important transition services required by special education law. The workshop will also provide information about the transition to the adult human service system, including Chapter 688, the state law that helps plan for youth with disabilities after they leave school.

Date: September 27th 

Time: 6pm

Who: Families with loved ones from 14-24
