Attend a DCDT Townhall
Going the Next DCDT VA Townhall - Discovering ME!
Frustrated by the limitations of traditional transition assessments? Are you looking for a way to increase student and family involvement in the transition planning process? If so, join us to learn about the Discovering ME! project. Participants will learn how the basic principles of the Discovery process developed by Marc Gold and Associates were adapted for use with students to build early work-based learning opportunities. After a quick overview of this youth-centered process, practitioners will share some of their experiences with the program and answer your questions about getting started and implementing the program.
