The Asperger/Autism Network

October 30, 2014

Even when you know what the law mandates about transition services --how do you bridge the gap between theory and practice? This webinar offers examples of how parents can work effectively with educators so that students will be well-prepared to take on the challenges of life after high school.

Jennie is a SpedEx Advisory Committee member and is the past Chairperson of the Massachusetts Special Education Advisory Council. She is a parent of a child with Asperger's Syndrome, Nonverbal Learning Disorder and Central Auditory Processing Disorder.

Marilyn Weber is a transition advocate with more than 15 years' experience working with youth between the ages of 14 and 22.
