The NDSTP has developed a series of workshops to explain the sometimes complicated process of transition to college, post-secondary opportunities, and employment.
These workshops will teach families and youth about how to best access the services available after leaving high school. There are a total of five sessions that go into great detail on the transition process.
The Road to Transitioning
This is a great place to start, as the main focus of this workshop is on the basics of life after high school. We will focus on the options that are available and preparation for this transition. There will be information on how to get adult supports and tips for transition.
The Road to Independence
Everyone wants to have independence and feel like they are able to make their life what they want it to be. During this workshop you will be learning about how to become more independent and make sure you have a voice in what you want your life to look like. The focus will be on what it takes to live independently or interdependently with the help of adult programs and supports.
The Road to a Good Life
A good life is important for everyone and understanding what that looks like for you and how you can attain it is the main focus. We will be talking about college options when transitioning and what your rights are, along with what is available. You will get tips on transition planning and how to assess your strengths.
The Road to Employment
If you are searching for more knowledge on adult supports in the workforce for people with disabilities this workshop will be focusing on that. You will learn about tips for employment planning, what your rights are, and how to get the support you need to enter into the workforce.
Keeping it Together
Being organized is an important aspect of becoming an adult. During this workshop you will be learning about being organized with your important documents. This will be shown through our accordion file system where you can have everything you need in one place. The file folder also has resources in each of its twelve sections to offer guidance and support.
We are available to conduct free workshops to youth in your area. If you are interesting in scheduling a workshop, contact Amanda at email@example.com
