Transition Specialists/ High School Liaisons:

Our responsibilities as Transition Specialist include facilitating Individualized Education Programming Team meetings for full time Skill Center students. Other responsibilities includecoordinating school services in preparation for the IEP and ensuring compliance with local, state and federal guidelines. We also function as a resource for students and families with questions about community agencies, support and services. 

As the High School Liaison we attend IEP's for the Skill Center half time students who attend high school programming for a portion of their day.  We attend these IEP's as a representative of the Skill Center and Livonia School District.

This year, a new component has been added.  We have developed Transition Classes that meet monthly.  The focus has been on the students' understanding of their responsibilities for self advocacy and participation in their Transition Planning as well as the IEP Process.
