Offered three times each year at locations across the state, Planning A Life is a two-day Transition planning conference with information and resources for families, educators and professionals.

The next conference will take place at Easter Seals Massachusetts in Worcester on 11/30/17 and 12/1/17 from 8:30am to 4:00pm

Topics include:

  • Creating a Vision for life beyond High School
  • Transition Laws
  • Transition assessments
  • The MA Transition Planning Form and IEP goals
  • Post-Secondary Education and Career preparation
  • Community connections
  • Family involvement

The program fee is $125/person or $175/family (or professional). Limited scholarships are available – please contact us for details.


Transition planning begins when a student on an IEP turns 14 and continues throughout their high school and young adult years. It is important that families, students, and professionals use this time to collaboratively plan a post-secondary vision in preparation for life after high school. The process can be overwhelming, so connecting students and families to resources, information, and services is a central goal of Planning a Life.
