Transitions and Jobs – How You Can Help

Did you know that if you have a minimum of two paid  jobs in high school you are five times more likely to succeed in the future? I actually had no idea of this statistic until I went to the Yippe Conference. In this blog post I will share with you some of the suggestions as to how parents can help with the transition. I will be explaining how I am working on that transition. I thought this might be helpful to all.

Speak Up, Explore and Experience

Transition Planning Timelines for Grades 8 – 12

I am to the point with my son where we are starting to focus on transitioning. I don’t know how far we will get, but time surely has all the answers. I have been struggling trying to figure out what he wants to do after high school. I am not even sure he really knows. I tried setting up different electives that he picked but then it just kind fizzled out on the interest. It’s been rather frustrating at times. I know I have mentioned a few times about the conferences at  Yippie. One of the things I found very handy was a Transition Planning Timeline. This has give me a new focus on how and what to put emphasis on. This can start as early as Grades 8 – 9.  The hand out I did receive I found to be very helpful. Most of you following my blog know that my son has autism and a cognitive disability. So this is something we are slowly starting to work on.

Yippie Conference 2 of 5 – Adult Resources

Earlier this month I attended the second weekend of a 5 month series on transition your child with special needs into adult hood. I have really enjoyed these conferences as they are a wealth of information, great networking for parents and youth. Your head is swimming with information by the time you leave that it actually takes a while to process and let it all sink in.

Transition Conference Part 1 of 5 – IEP

Last weekend I want to a transition conference sponsored by YIPPE, which is Youths in Partnership with Parents Empowerment, it a series of five conferences. This was our first month and it was simply more amazing then I thought it could be. This months topic was about IEPs.

Changing Curriculum Again!! Why Didn’t I Think of This Sooner??

Most of you who follow my blog know that my son has high functioning autism and has a cognitive disability. Well we had a neuropysch appointment a year or two ago and I based all my teaching around that. Well we have now hit high school and he is a freshman. I have been working with DVR as we are getting ready for transition and he is involved in a program with them. Well she hooked me up with the special education center at our technical college.
