PACER Center workshop will explore the power of parents’ high expectations in planning for transition

Minneapolis: PACER Center will offer “From Disability to Possibilities: The Power of Parents’ High Expectations in IEP Transition Planning,” a free workshop for parents of teens and young adults with disabilities. It will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4 at PACER Center, 8161 Normandale Blvd., Bloomington.

Parent expectations have a powerful influence on future outcomes. High expectations are associated with higher achievement and “can-do” skills for students with disabilities.

This workshop will help parents communicate high expectations for youth and young adults. Topics will include:

  • Setting high expectations with youth and why these expectations are important
  • Exploring what’s possible (and how to do it)
  • Using advocacy skills to promote high expectations
  • Creating commitment to high expectations
  • Putting it into practice

To register to attend this free workshop, contact PACER Center at (952) 838-9000 or (800) 537-2237 (toll free), email PACER@PACER.org, or visit PACER.org/workshops.
