REACH for Transition:  ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY AND TRANSITION

An excellent webinar was held on July 7 through the Statewide Parent Advocacy Network.  The webinar was specific to transition from high school to adult life.  The presenters noted that now is the time to find out what Assistive Technology would support your student best.  It is so very important that the IEP transition plan contains Assistive Technology conversation and goals for the high school career and adulthood, both devices and services.
