Price: $250.00


Presented by Peter Gerhardt, Ed.D.

With a new focus on career development, personal competence and life satisfaction, the outcomes of the transition process are being redefined beyond simple job placement. But a curriculum centered on developing the many different yet critical skills young adults with autism need for functioning in the community presents challenges to existing educational systems.

Peter Gerhardt, a dynamic presenter and researcher with experience transitioning secondary and post-secondary students with autism, gives you an overview and practical strategies for community-referenced transition planning at any age, including employment, social competence, sexuality and quality-of-life concerns. Find out how to establish a program of evidence-based instruction to help each student develop the skills and abilities needed to effectively navigate the world beyond their classrooms. Dr. Gerhardt will help you improve transition planning by:

  • Identifying the components of a comprehensive transition plan
  • Sharing tips for developing meaningful IEP goals
  • Defining the multiple constituent groups whose needs are to be met in the employment development process
  • Identifying the three primary components of sexuality
  • Describing the individually determined components of an assessment of quality of life
  • And more
