On this episode, Linda Houle and I welcome Lisa Washington, a student-to-adult transition consultant for the Arkansas Transition Services team with the Dawson Education Service Cooperative. In this candid interview, Lisa leads us through the 5 areas of preparation that students with special needs should navigate to prepare for their career/life journey once they turn 18. As Linda and I discover, it’s a preparation that any student and parent could benefit from.
I also share what I learned helping Lisa organize her online binder. Anyone who curates online material for an audience will appreciate the challenges we faced, and how incorporating a simple outline can help address a major issue with going digital.
This episode will be an eye-opener for any parent, caregiver or teacher preparing high school students for life after they turn 18.
