If you are, or you know, a student or family member who is a ND high school student with disabilities age 14-21, this update is for you!
This past year, an increasing number of ND high school students with physical, sensory, intellectual, mental and communication disabilities have utilized the services made available through Assistive’s Agreement with Vocational Rehabilitation Division (VR) of the Department of Human Services. As we begin our second program year, let’s recap the opportunities that have been provided to these students across ND in 2016-17.
Through our agreement with VR, Assistive has been able to assess and address the assistive technology (AT) needs of high school students in transition, as young as 14. We have traveled to a great number of schools across the special education regions of ND to provide funded assessments, demonstrations, Individualized Education Program (IEP) presentations, and various gatherings of all kinds to promote awareness of the program.
What have we been up to?
Does this information make you think of a certain student who might benefit?
What should you do as a: student, parent, teacher, therapist, case manager, VR counselor?
Consider these great opportunities for high school students across the state, provided through the VR-Transition Program. Let’s collaborate to bridge the gap between ability and disability!
