Planning a Life (PAL) is a two-day transition conference geared towards parents of and professionals working with post-secondary transition age youth (14 -22).  PAL can help provide parents and professionals with skills and information necessary to support youth as they prepare for full, productive lives during and after high school. We will discuss how to begin the transition planning process and how to determine transition goals on the IEP.  We will discuss ways parents and caregivers can encourage independence and self-advocacy in their children.
