Limited Capacity seats available

In Wisconsin there are options for students with intellectual disabilities (ID) and autism who wish to transition from high school to college. In the past, the majority of transitional planning for students with ID 18-21 focused on supported employment. The Madison School District Campus Connect Program at Madison Area Technical College provides fully inclusive post-secondary education for students with disabilities seeking non-degree certificates and degree certificates. Learn how students with ID and Autism take advantage of additional universal design instructional methods, self-determination, and peer-mentor networks in the college environment to be successful. 1. Attendees will lean about the strategies and structure to develop and maintain a post-secondary education dual enrollment program with a local school district and technical college. 2. Attendees know and understand data from previous three years of Campus Connect at Madison College including grades, instructional and support strategies, and choosing successful career programs that lead to long term vocational placement. 3. Attendees will learn about best practices for post-secondary education for students with intellectual disabilities and Autism using Think College national standards.
