3 Section 1: Challenges of Transition MD/SD Version Targeting Transition

4 Overview of OSEP Indicator 13 Transition Process 1. Identify meaningful postsecondary goals. - education and/or training - employment - independent living (if necessary) 2. Base Postsecondary goals on age-appropriate assessment. 3. Identify measurable annual transition goals to meet postsecondary goals. postsecondary goals. 4. Secure transition services to meet postsecondary goals. 5. Manage outside services (engage adult providers). 6. Develop a course of study (list of classes) to meet postsecondary goals. postsecondary goals.

5 What We Need to Do Questions we must help students answer: What are my postsecondary goals for... What are my postsecondary goals for education/training?... employment?... independent living? How will I meet my postsecondary goals? How will I meet my postsecondary goals? What IEP goals would help me reach my goals? What IEP goals would help me reach my goals? What transition services would help me reach my goals? What transition services would help me reach my goals? What courses would help me reach my goals? What courses would help me reach my goals?

13 Moderate Disabilities Survey Survey contains 61 transition skills for students who will live somewhat dependent adult lives.

14 Autism Spectrum Survey Survey contains 63 transition skills for students on the autism spectrum.

25 1. Doesn’t demonstrate skill regardless of cueing. 2. Dependent setting with multiple cues (whatever it takes). 3. Dependent setting with no more than one cue. 4. Dependent setting with no cueing. 5. Independent setting with no more than one cue. 6. Independent setting with no cueing. Use a Consistent Scoring System

26 Measurable Goal and Objectives Concept Level with Objectives NA Short-Term Objectives: 1.Given five supervised situations with no more than one cue per situation, John will organize his daily schedule 4 out of 5 times. 2.Given five supervised situations with no more than one cue per situation, John will follow his daily schedule 4 out of 5 times. * Major criteria “3” is NA (not applicable) for this student in this situation)—Mark NA Goal: Over 36 weeks, John will increase his ability to keep and follow a schedule from needing multiple cues in a dependent setting to needing no more than one cue in a dependent setting 4 out of 5 times as measured by a teacher check-off sheet. NA

27 Measurable Goal and Objectives Skills/Tasks Level with Objectives Short-Term Objectives: 1.Given five situations and no cueing, John will independently identify when he needs to use the toilet 4 out of 5 times. 2. Given five situations and no cueing, John will independently sit on the toilet correctly 4 out of 5 times. 3. Given five situations and no cueing, John will independently use toilet paper correctly 4 out of 5 times. 4. Given five situations and no cueing, John will independently flush the toilet 4 out of 5 times. Goal: Over 36 weeks, John will increase his ability to use toilet facilities correctly from needing multiple cues in a dependent setting to needing no cues in an independent setting, as measured by a student check-off sheet, monitored by the case manager. NA

28 Measurable Goal and Objectives Skills/Tasks Level with Benchmarks Benchmark One: By November 15, given five dependent situations and no more than three cues, John will use the toilet facilities correctly 4 out of 5 times. Benchmark Two: By February 15, given five dependent situations and no more than one cue, John will use the toilet facilities correctly 4 out of 5 times. Benchmark Three: By May 15, given five dependent situations and no assistance, John will use the toilet facilities correctly 4 out of 5 times. Goal: Over 36 weeks, John will increase his ability to use toilet facilities correctly by identifying he needs to use the toilet, sit on the toilet correctly, use toilet paper correctly, and flush the toilet when finished from needing multiple cues in a dependent setting to needing no assistance in a dependent setting, as measured by a check-off sheet, monitored by the teacher. NA

29 Measurable Goal and Objectives Detail Level with Benchmarks Goal: Over 36 weeks, John will increase his ability to make eye contact when verbal directions are given, from needing multiple cues in dependent settings to needing no cues in independent settings. Benchmarks: 1.By December 1, given five dependent situations where verbal directions are given and whatever cueing is necessary, John will make eye contact 4 out of 5 trials. 2. By February 15, given five dependent situations where verbal directions are given and no more than one cue, John will make eye contact 4 out of 5 trials. 3. By June 1, given five independent situations where verbal directions are given and no cueing, John will make eye contact 4 out of 5 trials.
