for high school and transition special education teachers & transition coordinators who want to better support students and families as they access adult services
Teaching is priority #1 and connecting your young adults and families to benefits is priority #2.
How to learn the Who, What, Where, and When of government and community benefits.
How to find and connect with reputable people in your local benefit community.
I’ve been overwhelmed and confused about government and community benefits just like you. Once I changed my mindset, I was open to learning, supporting families, and began to prioritize time in my work day to connecting families with benefits. Shifting from ‘that’s someone else's job’ to ‘I’m the best person to support my families’ made all the difference. If your families lack trust in other agencies or are unaware of what’s available to support them and their student, then this training is a great place to start in helping your families get the benefits they deserve.
