We are excited to announce a 3-part webcast series regarding the transition from high school to postsecondary education and the community! Transitions Founder Shaloni Winston and Board Member Nancy DeSando discuss their practices and efforts with youth and young adults with autism spectrum disorders.
On August 12 at 3 pm, they participated in the webcast “Transition to Postsecondary Education for Students with ASD: What Families and Students Need to Know.” This webcast highlighted efforts in upstate New York to promote the transition process to postsecondary education for students with ASD. Suggestions for parents and students were provided. This webcast was archived and will soon be available for viewing on VCU's website.
Tune in on August 27 at 3 pm for “What Works: Person Centered Planning for the Transition Process to Postsecondary Education.” This webcast will focus on how the Lexington Center uses a person centered planning process for youth with ASD as they transition to postsecondary education and training.
Finally, on September 9 at 3 pm, view “Transition to Independent Living Settings for Youth with ASD.” Staff from the Transitions will provide tips based on their work with young adults as they make the transition to independent living.
