Monday January 17, 2022 8:00 AM - 11:59 PM - PaTTAN - Online Course
Monday January 24, 2022 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM - Webinar
This is a training designed to support the successful implementation of the secondary transition process by increasing the knowledge of speech-language pathologists regarding the various roles these professionals play within secondary transition planning.
Participants in this course will examine the various responsibilities that the SLP may have within the secondary transition team: organizer, facilitator, collaborator, advocate, data analyst, and progress monitor. They will discuss the duties of the SLP as a facilitator of transition programming, including self-advocacy activities and student-led IEPs.
Participants will also examine methods for increasing effective collaboration between stakeholders, including families and agencies. Additionally, SLPs will identify ways that speech-language data can be presented and utilized to complement the transition planning process. They will also discuss how they advocate for and support students’ rights to communicate, both within the educational environment and within transition planning itself.
Participants will be able to:
- State the 6 possible roles of the SLP on the Transition team
- Identify three methods of collaboration that can be used to facilitate communication between IEP team members
- Describe three ways in which students can participate in their own progress monitoring
