Transition tools

The contents of this post come to you courtesy of Mary Mazzoni, who has put together the tremendously helpful blog Life After IEPs. And yes, there is life after IEPs and special education, even as many of the institutional supports available during the K-12 years go away after the student finishes school.

Being prepared for the issues faced during transition to adult life can make a big difference for you and your kiddo. One way to prepare is by soaking up the tips and wisdom found in sources like Life After IEPs.

Recently Mary sent blog subscribers a letter with links to updated versions of the most popular posts on Life After IEPs. She agreed to let me share an excerpt of the letter with you. That’s what you’ll find below!

School buses will soon be rolling again – and you’ll want access to key resources for your teen’s self determination and transition planning.
I’ve updated the following popular posts so that you can easily link directly to free tools and strategies that will get the school year off to a great start!
Six Strategies for a Positive School Year:
Transition Portfolios:
Free Transition Tool Shop:
The Tool Shop connects to many posts that describe and link to a wide variety of free transition tools. Please note – The schools, universities and agencies that created these tools sometimes change their links.
If a link within a post is no longer working – you can:
 – try to “Google” the tool named in the post – or,
 – email me and I can find the new link and update my post.
Keeping links current is a never-ending job! Please contact me if you have any questions!
Take Some Time to Consider – What Matters Most
Our time is limited – we can’t do everything.
As the new school year begins – lets take time to reflect. We want to build daily, weekly, and monthly routines around the activities and goals that matter most to us – and to our kids. This is what it means to live a full, self determined life.
As you and your teen consider how you would like to structure your school year routines and your plans for the future – these posts may help:-
– A Good Day Plan –
– Taking Time to Grow What Matters –
May this be the start of the best school year ever for you and your teen!
