College-based transition services for students with intellectual disabilities continue to grow, but more needs to be known about how to include inclusive postsecondary education in transition services that are high quality and lead to positive post-school outcomes for students. This webinar offers participants an overview of national data on college-based transition services as well as information on what we have discovered in Massachusetts to be critical components of the services, including planning, supports, inclusive academic access and career development services as well as applied strategies and resources to support necessary training and evaluation.

Presenter: Maria Paiewonsky, Ed.D.

Maria Paiewonsky, Ed.D., is a program manager and transition specialist at the Institute for Community Inclusion. She also serves as Director of the Massachusetts Transition Leadership Initiative, a personnel preparation program that prepares teachers for the MA transition specialists endorsement at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Maria has coordinated numerous secondary and transition related projects and works with teachers, interdisciplinary team members, students and families to develop positive and inclusive college, work and community outcomes. Maria has most recently coordinated a research and training project for ICI called Think College Transition. Working with a team at ICI and partners at three Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment partnerships, they are working to answer this question: Does college make a difference for students with intellectual disability or autism who are pursuing postsecondary goals and if so, what difference is it making?

Presented by Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress in partnership with Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action Trade Association.
