The challenges of the past two years are challenging for everyone in education. For exceptional students, the preparation for after high school and/or “aging out” has been made more intense because of pandemic-related delays. This edWebinar will share what works and how to help students prepare for their futures. Join us for a discussion about avoiding the transition cliff.

This session will provide valuable information for CTE directors and educators, special education directors and educators, transition coordinators, and vocational educators. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
