If your child attends middle or high school and currently receives special services, it is never TOO early to start planning!

The Parent Advisory Board of the Wilton Public Schools, is hosting a seminar on “Transition:  Moving from High School to Post-School Options” at the Wilton Public Library, on Friday, Nov. 8, 10 a.m. – 12 noon. The presentation covers what parents need to know about high school transition planning and services. Transition is the process of preparing your child for the move from secondary, or high school education, to higher education, employment and independent living.

If your child receives special education services, this seminar will provide valuable information. Speaker Bill Bannish is an educational consultant specializing in transition services at SERC, the State Education Resource Center, ctserc.org. He has many years of experience in designing transition plans and consulting for a variety of organizations. 

Parents and other family members are vital participants in the transition planning process. You provide a unique perspective on your student’s needs. The goal of this presentation is to inform all parents or interested parties and students of the IDEA regulations specific to IEPs and transition services at the secondary level.

In addition, ways to make this transition into career/employment, postsecondary education/training, and/or independent living smoother and less stressful will also be discussed.

Admission is free and refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to PABWilton@gmail.com.
