A Whole New World:
Supporting Transition to Post Secondary Life with the Americans with Disabilities Act
Originally broadcasted: June 23, July 30 and August 13, 2020
Every student with a disability who has received special education services needs to plan and prepare for transition to life after high school, no matter where they’re headed – college, vocational school, apprenticeship program, or employment. As vocational rehabilitation professionals, school counselors, transition specialists, and other service providers work to help students and families prepare, it is important to understand the significant changes that lie ahead. No longer will teachers, parents, or other adults assume responsibility for identifying disability related needs; the young adult with a disability must be ready to speak up, initiate requests for accommodations in the classroom or the workplace, and be a full and active participant in ensuring their needs are met.
TransCen’s Mid-Atlantic ADA Center hosted this three-part webinar series designed to help professionals inform, assist, and support youth with disabilities and their families as they prepare for transition. Sessions focus on how the ADA differs from special education law and the importance of understanding these differences in order to ensure a more effective transition to adult life.
