Occupational therapy practitioners have specialized knowledge and skills that can promote academic success and social participation as students transition through the educational system and prepare for meaningful employment, higher education, and the acquisition of critical life skills. This course will present an overview of the importance of addressing transition needs as part of a student’s IEP and the key role of the occupational therapy practitioner as a potential collaborative member of the transition team. The Dr. Seuss book Oh the Places You’ll Go! provides a simple but effective tool that underscores building on a student’s strengths and goals when developing a transition plan in order to support student success. The information contained on this CD is from the AudioInsight™ Seminar originally presented on February, 6, 2008.
