OCECD Announces a New Statewide Training! It's My Turn GPS (Goals, Planning, Success)

We are excited to tell you about our new Transition training opportunity we have designed for students that are in the Transition process. This transition training is intended for students who struggle in the learning process or those who may need extra time learning skills to assist them in deciding and reaching their goals for life after high school. 
This newly developed curriculum includes:
• Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 
• Individual Education Program (IEP) 
• Addressing Transition in the IEP 
• Section 504 
• ADA 
• Job Opportunities/Descriptions 
• Self-Advocacy Skills 
• Problem Solving 
• Backward Planning 
• Resources 

During this self-determination training, students will learn about themselves by developing a personal profile, exploring options regarding their future after high school, learning how to set goals and planning outcomes. The original It’s My Turn training is still available for students having intense needs. We can provide both trainings in three consecutive one day trainings. Each day consists of two sessions, one each morning and one each afternoon. Sessions are 2 1/2 hours in length, with a maximum of 16 students per group, 32 students per day. Our trainers are able to present the original IMT training to one group, and the IMT-GPS to the second group of 16 students. IMT-GPS was developed for students with mild to moderate needs having an IEP, 504 plan, or students at risk.  For more information about "It’s My Turn GPS" or to schedule a presentation for students in your area, please call the Ohio Coalition at 1-844-382-5452.
