Linda Yoder will present the breakout session “Legal Issues in Secondary Transition” during the Connecticut Secondary Transition Symposium. The session will provide a comprehensive overview of federal and state laws and regulations concerning the postsecondary transition requirements for students with disabilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The workshop will be geared toward assisting teachers and administrators in understanding legal requirements and trends for transition planning. This will include discussion on the impact of minimum wage laws on student work experiences and addressing the need to address accommodations and supports in the community and after eligibility for school services.

The 5th annual symposium, with the theme of “Every Voice Matters”, will continue to build the capacity of educators and other professionals, in partnership with middle and high school students with disabilities and their families, to help ensure successful post-school outcomes.
