Event Date and Time

Description

Join us as we transform transition for students who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing

What’s the Plan for Life After High School?

In order for Deaf and Hard of Hearing adolescents to graduate feeling confident in their future goals, supported, and self-determined to pursue next steps as productive young adults, a collaborative strategic individualized transition plan is essential. Connect with other high school students, parents, and professionals around the state for inspiration, information and action steps to use right away for successful transition planning.
