This course addresses training and sustainability activities required for transition education to be institutionalized in school districts across the Commonwealth. Participants will be equipped to take a lead in establishing up-to-date transition practices in their respective school districts. To this end, participants will learn how to develop and lead professional development workshops that demonstrate that the transition related needs of students with disabilities is a shared responsibility. Field-based assignments will include presenting a series of transition-related, in-service workshops to educators and/or human services professionals and attending professional meetings for MA transition specialists and other transition stakeholders.
