Teens on the Team

Learning self-advocacy is an integral part of a student’s progression towards a smooth transition to life after high school. One way to engage students in decision making about their future is to actively involve them in their own IEP meetings. To get you started on that path, this week’s FREE tool is a set of questions designed to help students self-reflect on their goals and ambitions before their IEP meeting takes place so they can be better prepared to contribute. As a bonus, we’ve included a brief discussion on empowering student voices! The questions come from “Engaging and Empowering Families in Secondary Transition,” a valuable resource that highlights the ways families can reinforce and advance the efforts of school and community professionals who are working to prepare students for the highest level of independence they can achieve. CEC’s Tool of the Week is a free resource designed to support you in your special education practice. Subscribe and it’ll be automatically delivered to your inbox!  Get your Tool of the Week.
