Getting Transition Assessments and Using Them to Create Goals and Obtain Services

From the AANE Online Training Catalog
The Asperger's Association of New England

October 8, 2013

Transition assessments provide powerful tools and data to:
  • Document a student’s need for transition services.
  • Give the student and the members of his or her educational team an accurate, objective profile of the student’s strengths and challenges.
  • Help the student and the team develop a detailed and truly individualized vision for the student’s life after high school.
  • Help the student and the team develop a detailed action plan to help the student make meaningful progress toward realizing his or her vision.
In this webinar, we will discuss how neuropsychological evaluations and a variety of specific functional assessments can strengthen the process of transition planning, and the delivery and evaluation of transition services.
 
We will also discuss specific types of evaluations, and how the student, parents, and educators can take information from the assessments and put it to work for the student's benefit.
