This critical time in the life of a person with autism requires careful planning on the parts of both caregivers and professionals. Navigating the changes from school to the adult service system is incredibly challenging. Our esteemed speakers will present on a variety of legal, educational, and service topics specifically addressing adolescence and the changes that come with the end of the high school years.

2016 Transition Conference Highlights

Autism New Jersey was pleased to once again offer specialized and up-to-date information on the transition from school to adult services. Designed for caregivers of individuals aged 10-25, this content will also benefit professionals supporting adolescents and young adults. 

 A sold-out crowd of 400 parents and professionals enjoyed a keynote session presented by Elizabeth Shea, Esq., Assistant Commissioner, NJ DHS, DDD.

The 2016 Transition Conference also  hosted 12 workshops presented by experts in the field, and nearly 40 exhibitors focused on  legal, instructional, and service issues specific to this important time of life.

Transition Services should:
  • be a part of the Individualized Education Program (IEP).
  • be based on a student’s individual preferences and interests.
  • begin at age 14 (or earlier if applicable).
  • be a long-range plan that emphasizes skills that are needed for adult life.
