New MA Guide to Transition to 22

My town’s special education director of out-of-district-placements sent me a new online guide to Transition in Massachusetts, put together by the Disability Law Council, Massachusetts Advocates for Children, the Federation for Children with Special Needs, and Northeastern University School of Law.

A Transition Services Online Manual:

(October 2011)

• Basic Legal Rights    • Forms    • Resources    • Video

This Manual is written for parents and students who are advocating for
better transition services, including social, vocational and independent
living skills.  It is written in an easy-to-understand format but also
contains “Endnotes” and an Appendix at the end of the Manual with legal
information for attorneys and experienced advocates.

The Manual was edited by the Disability Law Center (DLC), in partnership
with the Federation for Children with Special Needs, the Institute for
Community Inclusion, and Mass. Advocates for Children.  It was written by
the Northeastern University School of Law Legal Skills in Social Context
program.

Please help spread the word about this Manual by forwarding this
information to your contacts and networks!

DLC will be updating and improving the Manual on a regular basis.  We plan
to include more videos of students, parents and advocates, in English, ASL
and Spanish, as well as updates on legal developments, new forms, and
other practical advice.
