A collaboration with Accessible College and Power UP by Learning Essentials.
Continuum of Care & Self-Advocacy for Students with Disabilities & Health Conditions through the Education Cycle
Families that have students with disabilities and health conditions have different needs, roles and responsibilities. As students transition through the education cycle there is a lot of considerations from identifying a disability, to creating an IEP/504 and advocating for accommodations.
Join in the conversation and discussion as we tackle the continuum of care and self-advocacy for students with disabilities and health conditions. Let’s support students taking on a larger role and learning to self-advocate as they transition through their K- post-secondary education. What are the questions that families should be asked to promote a smoother transition through this cycle? How can students begin to foster self-advocacy skills early on to promote independence? How can parents and teachers support students and encourage students to play the main role in self-advocacy?
