Overview:

An important piece in working with graduating students with special needs and adults with disabilities is journeying with them during transition into the community. This starts with the process of transition planning involving persons with disabilities, their families, and professionals working with them. It helps widen their perspectives to identify options and possibilities through envisioning of a holistic life where the voices of persons with disabilities are included and heard. The result is a shared vision for directing efforts to support persons with disabilities in achieving their vision of a good life.

This 3-day workshop will cover key concepts behind holistic person-centric transition planning for persons with disabilities. You will learn to use templates in The Good Life Journey Toolkit to generate clarity, conviction, and direction for planning with persons with disabilities and their families in their journey after graduation. Through hands-on practice and peer support, you will practise facilitation skills needed for successfully engaging the different groups of people involved in the transition process. You will also acquire strategies for working with the community to explore and create opportunities for persons with disabilities to be meaningfully engaged and to contribute their skills and gift.
