Series Description

TARGET AUDIENCE: EDUCATORS, ADMINISTRATORS, PROFESSIONALS, INDIVIDUALS WITH ASD, & FAMILY MEMBERS
The mission of Project 10: Transition Education Network is to build the capacity of Florida school districts and stakeholders to provide secondary transition services to students with disabilities for the purpose of improving academic success and post-school outcomes. UF-CARD is pleased to host this series of sessions with presenter Carly Detlefsen. Participants can attend all sessions or choose to attend only session of interest. Participants will also receive information on supplemental resources related to the series.

  • Monday, 2/20 – Project 10 Overview – This training will review Project 10 resources, strategies, and initiatives including capacity building, interagency collaboration, transition legislation, student development and outcomes, and their connection back to the four state transition indicators; graduation, drop out, transition IEP compliance, and post-school outcomes. We will highlight the initiatives, training, and technical assistance provided to teachers and district staff as well as resources for families. A guided walk through the Project 10 website will also be part of this overview.
  • Tuesday, 2/28 – Legislative Update – This session will review recent legislation that has greatly impacted transition planning, including new standard diploma options for students with disabilities. We will look closely at those changes and how they affect various components of the IEP, the timeline for transition planning, graduation options, deferral of the standard diploma, and the provision of FAPE up to age 22.
  • Wednesday, 3/8 – WIOA and VR Basics – This informational session will highlight recent changes in legislation for vocational rehabilitation and the allocation of money to be focused and used on transition-age youth while still in the K-12 school system. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) has opened the door for more services, including pre-employment training for students with disabilities. A general overview of the process for referral and eligibility determination will also be discussed as well as supports and services available after the student exits the K-12 school system.
  • Wednesday, 3/15 – Discovery Process – In this training, we will look at person-centered planning in its most intensive function through the Discovery Process. Frequently used with students with the most significant disabilities, it provides an alternative to traditional approaches of gathering a student’s strengths, preferences, interests, and needs in order to assist with defining and reaching their goals, often being associated with customized employment and job carving. A brief overview of the history of the Discovery Process, its benefits, the steps associated with the process, and available resources will be covered.

  1. Describe the services (i.e. initiatives, training, resources, technical assistance) provided to teachers and families by Project 10.
