Greetings from the Northwest! My name is Andy Scheef and I am pleased to represent DCDT’s northwest subdivision.  Currently, I serve as Assistant Professor of Special Education at the University of Idaho. Previously, I worked as a transition coordinator for the Moscow School District (Moscow, ID). As such, I have a strong interest in developing and maintaining connections between institutions of higher education and K-12 schools. As a researcher, I seek to better understand the services and practices that will help youth with disabilities achieve post-school goals and be valued members of their community.

Please email me to make me aware of transition-related happenings in your state. I would be excited to highlight these happenings in the DCDT newsletter!!!
