Think College Webinar: Planning for College Success Now: Recommendations for IEP Team

Planning for College Success Now: Recommendations for IEP Team

Presented by Maria Paiewonsky, Program Director and Transition Specialist @Institute of Community Inclusion, University of Massachusetts Boston

With the enactment of the Higher Education Opportunities Act of 2008, a growing number of opportunities exist across the country for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to attend college. In this time, we have learned a lot about how students with IDD meet higher expectations when given the chance to learn and work with their peers at college. At the same time, we have also learned more about how we can better prepare younger students for college success. In this webinar, the presenter will share recommendations for individual education program (IEP) team members to develop and support IEP goals that align with the preparation, knowledge and skills students need at college.
