Webinar: Using Transition Assessment Results to Write Indicator 13-Compliant Transition Plans

In collaboration with the Division on Career Development and Transition (DCDT)

From the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC):

“Have you seen transition assessment results that somehow didn’t lead to meaningful transition goals and plans? This program provides guidance in transforming commonly-used transition assessment results into transition plans that comply with Indicator 13 and provide clear goals for training, education, employment and, where appropriate, independent living skills. You’ll see examples of Indicator 13-compliant transition plan components based on age-appropriate transition assessments, with an emphasis on writing annual transition goals and creating individualized transition plans. You’ll come away better able to create viable, age-appropriate transition plans tailored to individual students’ aspirations and ability profiles.

This program is appropriate for special educators, related services professionals, school psychologists, and administrators who write transition plans.

After completing this program, you will be able to:

Discuss IDEA and Indicator 13 transition service requirements.
Review transition assessments for specific purposes.
Write Indicator 13-compliant transition services, activities, and goals based on age appropriate transition assessment results.
Describe where to obtain various transition assessments discussed.”

The Global Happiness Project | New Tech Network

This project, which took place throughout the spring of 2014, asked teachers and students around the world to explore the following questions:

  • What elements contribute to a happy and healthy society?
  • How well do our own local and global communities measure up?
  • How can we use data, creativity, and community to make the world a happier place?

Through the Global Happiness Project, students engaged in a virtual conversation about the components of a happy society, and co-designed and implemented a survey to measure these components at the local and global level. Later, students analyzed the results of this survey and used what they learned to inform an advocacy project designed to improve at least one area of happiness at the local or global level.
