Calvert County workshop on what’s next for graduating students with disabilities

Calvertlogo2Calvert County parents wondering what comes after high school for their students with disabilities should consider attending a workshop March 18.

The Calvert County's Special Education Citizens' Advisory Committee (SECAC) and the Calvert County Public Schools Special Education Department will host a "Transition from High School to Adulthood" Workshop at Calvert Middle School from 6 – 8 p.m. for parents of students with disabilities.

This informative workshop will provide an overview of the transition process, followed by breakout sessions on topics such as the Maryland Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS) and the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA), determining if college is an option for your student with a disability, self-advocacy, and transitioning from pediatric to adult health care.

Many agencies and organizations serving Calvert County will be present to provide information about available resources, and childcare will be provided. Although pre-registration is not required, it is extremely helpful for planning purposes. Participants who need childcare, though, must pre-register. To register, please contact Sue Rafalowski of Parent Connections/Partners for Success at: 410-535-7387 or email: parentconnections@calvertnet.k12.md.us.
