Testimonials from our Clients
“I love your transition portfolio and so do my students. I don’t know if you remember but you gave me a whole box of them a couple of years ago through our mutual friend/colleague and we work in them all year long! By the time my students leave me at 19 years old and go to our district transition program they are leading their own IEPs and speaking up for themselves."
Special Education Teacher

Comprehensive portfolio planning for secondary students with disabilities. Includes supplemental material with activities that prompt students to self reflect and assess their personal strengths, interests, and needs as they relate to the world of work and living more independently. Activities promote self-advocacy and self-determination as students prepare for an adult transition program. My young adult was able to take their portfolio and helped them to be well prepared to talk with their DVR counselor and also their employment vendor.
