Federation for Children with Special Needs: Planning a Life Conferences

Planning a Life is a two day Transition planning conference with information and resources for families, educators and professionals.  Topics include:

  • Creating a Vision for life beyond High School
  • Transition Laws
  • Transition assessments
  • The MA Transition Planning Form and IEP goals
  • Post-Secondary Education and Career preparation
  • Community connections
  • Family involvement

Transition planning is an ongoing process that starts when a student on an IEP turns 14 and continues throughout their high school and young adult years. Our goal is to build a statewide network of proactive and informed families, educators and professionals working in partnership to develop student focused transition plans.

Planning A Life is scheduled from 8:30am – 4:00pm on a Friday and Saturday three times a year throughout Massachusetts. (check here for conference dates and site locations for the current 2015 – 2016 school year). Find the April Agenda here: PAL Agenda April. 2016.  Registration is required as space is limited. There is a program fee for this conference, limited scholarships are available.
