Tips for Practitioners Working with Families on Transition

P5943_Engaging_EmpoweringWhen supporting students with disabilities who are transitioning to post-school, families are our friends! They can observe behavior, collect data, support student work, and reinforce learning. That’s why this week’s FREE tool is a list of Tips for Practitioners designed to help you team up with your students’ families. From information sharing, to educating, to listening and consulting, these ideas will help you build collaborative relationships so you can work with families toward smooth and productive transitions for students. The list comes from Engaging and Empowering Families in Secondary Transition, a CEC book that envisions families as allies and offers concrete strategies for engaging them on multiple levels: from their role as instructors and evaluators for their own child, to their ability to serve as peer mentors in the community, to their potential to work as agents of systemic change. This is truly a visionary book that will help you see how teachers and families can work together to enable students to reach their fullest potential post-school.
