10/7/13: Transition Assessment and Planning for Adolescents with Special Needs

Presented by Margolis & Bloom's
Monday Lunch Series for Professionals



Generally speaking, transition is defined as the movement from one set of activities to another, but for the families of adolescents and young adults with special needs, it has a more specific meaning. In this context, "transition" refers to the complex process of moving from one life stage to another: from adolescence to adulthood.

Kelley Challen is Director of Transition Services at NESCA (Neuropsychology & Education Services for Children & Adolescents) in Newton, Massachusetts.

Shee will provide a brief overview of transition terminology, highlight best practices for transition planning and assessment, discuss the genesis of NESCA's innovative transition model, and provides practical advice for families and professionals navigating the process.

Lunch will be provided. Registration is required. Register Now!

When:   12:00 noon - 1:00pm Monday, October 7

Where: Margolis & Bloom (Driving Directions)
                   535 Boylston Street, 8th Floor
                   Boston, MA 02116
