      Effective Communication Strategies to Facilitate Advocacy & Self-Determination

      Self-determination and self-advocacy skills are essential for transitioning youth with disabilities, as they make decisions about their academics and postsecondary outcomes. This workshop allows students to develop a deeper understanding of these skills and their application in school and beyond, as they hear from a former student with an IEP who reflects on his educational experiences and the impact of self-determination and self-advocacy on his life choices. Intended Audience: Parents/Guardians and Students/Families NOTE: If you require interpretation services or other accommodations, please contact bklyntcac@schools.nyc.gov at least one week prior to the workshop. Transition & College Access Center (TCAC) Mission Statement: The Transition & College Access Centers will support schools and families with facilitating a seamless transition for students with IEPs from school to adult life, in preparation to be productive members of society. ​
