Description

Transition services are integral to preparing students for higher education and employment. For many students with disabilities, independent use of accessible educational materials (AEM) and accessible technologies is essential to meeting postsecondary education and career goals, and therefore need to be included in transition plans. Join this session as we unpack the challenges faced by students as they exit high school and enter postsecondary settings, and the role of AEM and accessible technologies in providing equal access to education and employment. Strategies for scaffolding students’ independent use of AEM and accessible technologies as they progress from Kindergarten through high school completion will be shared.
