IDEA and Federal Law stipulates that the age of 16 is the age that transition must begin.  Nevada Statutes, however, require that if a student is to be 14 within the year of the operating IEP, the transition process must begin.  What are your thoughts about this?  Are there benefits to starting transition 2 years earlier?  What are they?  Any negatives about the difference?  
Please share the following:

1.  Three new things you learned and will take away to your own practice.
2.  One thing that you have "squared away" in your brain about transition.
3.  One thing that is still "circling about" in your brain related to transition.

Over the next two weeks, your goal is to begin collecting resources.  We will share all of these resources at the end of the class so you will have them.  Find 3 resources that you feel will benefit you in your professional career.  Organize your resources as follows:

Describe what this resource does, and how it will benefit you as a professional, your students, other professionals, or the families you work with in 2-3 sentences.

Please see Class Notes page for further details.
