I saw this on my FB feed the morning for the Social Thinking site.  Rita Pierson a 40 year veteran teachers has these wonderful words of wisdom to share.  As I watched this video, several of the wonderful teachers, speech paths, paras, etc. I have the fortune to work with over the years came to mind.  Thank you to all for the hard you do to build relationships to help kids succeed.

The Transition Coalition, The University of Kansas, Special Education Department in partnership with NTACT has created free on-line researched based training modules for people who are involved with secondary transition planning.  I have gone through a couple of these modules and found them worthwhile. The registration process is simple.  I hope you take advantage of this wonderful resource.

This is a workbook by the National Collaboration on Workforce and Disability,  that assists individuals in understanding how to disclose information about his/her disability at school, work, or in a social situation. This is something you could have the student’s do as an age-appropriate transition assessment, a class project, or just on his/her own.  This is a great resource.

I came across this resource put out by College Stats.org on a Facebook friends page, thank you Libby Johnson.  This is a guide for some of our college students showing them all the different applications and software programs that are available to assist them.  I found myself thinking if they can use many of these apps in college, how helpful would they be in high school.  Either way, we can give this to our students entering post-school.  Enjoy!  And thanks again, Libby!
