Life is full of transitions. For families of children with disabilities thinking about the future can bring mixed emotions. Some families are just trying to make it through day-to-day challenges and might not feel they have the energy to think about what happens after high school. Others may want to plan for that transition, but are confused by unfamiliar language, complex steps, and the many agencies that may be involved in adult services.
Join us for this FREE 5-week SELF-PACED online course that focuses on providing parent-friendly transition information to help make transition planning easier. This course is designed for parents/caregivers of elementary, middle or high school students that receive special education services, but is open to everyone. The goal is to share factual information on transition services and to help make the transition from school services to the adult services world less confusing.
Topics covered in this course will include:
-What is Transition and Why is it Important?
-Transition Services in the IEP
-Supported Decision Making, Power of Attorney, Guardianship and Age of Majority
-Future planning including Special Needs Trusts, ABLE accounts and Letters of Intent
-Transitioning into Independent Living (employment, further education, housing, etc.)
-Connecting to Your Community and to Adult Services
– and much more!
The course begins June 7, 2020 and will be open until July 20, 2020.
Each session will open on Sunday and be open the remainder of the course.
Sessions contain video content, written content, discussion opportunities and resources.
|As we face the reality of the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19), JPJF has moved to virtual interaction with the community for all activities. We know the special needs community is having a very hard time coping with the abrupt and severe schedule changes that have been happening over the past few weeks. In an attempt to help our community deal with these changes, we are offering some activities and resources that will help you create a personal schedule. Our goal is to help you create some routines for you and your loved one(s) with special needs. You don’t have to do everything on this engagement page, but these are at least some options. Resources, ideas and suggestions noted on this website vary and come from the JPJF and other organizations. It is important that students and adults mimic their daily schedule as it existed before this pandemic as much as possible. Look for our suggestions on how to handle this pandemic and other resources under one of the following categories on our website www.JPJumPersFoundation.org:

Over the weekend, I found a movie on Amazon Prime that I had never heard of. I am not even sure how I ended up wanting to learn more about it, because it wasn’t the title. The movie is called . Keep The Change.
