Webinar, September 29th, 2023, with the Special Needs Advocacy Network in Massachusetts (SPAN). When the US Congress reauthorized IDEA in 2004, they identified the Purpose of the statute was to ensure that all children with disabilities have available to them a free appropriate public education that emphasizes special education and related services designed to meet their unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment, and independent living.
* In other words, IDEA’s explicit purpose, according to Congress, is postsecondary education, postsecondary employment and independent living to the greatest extent possible.
* Using both transition assessments and strategies, this session informs parents, advocates and attorneys how they may use IDEA’s requirements for, and the definition of, postsecondary transition planning for a coordinated set of activities within a results-oriented process that is focused on academic and functional achievement to obtain and ensure a FAPE for their students.
