Wednesday November 16, 2022 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM - The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel


Preparing for post-secondary transition can be an overwhelming process for many students; for students with deaf-blindness, there are even more considerations for the student, family, and school team to examine and incorporate into the plan. Come join us as members of Allegheny Intermediate Unit 3’s Deaf-Blind Resource Team share their experiences in partnering with one of the teams in their region to support a deaf-blind student and their family through the transition process.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify at least three major considerations for transition when working with deaf-blind students.
  • List at least two important resources for transition information/supports for deaf-blind students and their families.
  • Describe one action for future learning regarding secondary transition and deaf-blind students.


Target Audience
