TARGET GROUP: 6th to 9th Grade
This complete program facilitates students' transition from middle school to high school through multimedia presentations including an engaging video and the Self-Advocacy Handbook. The lessons are reinforced through the use of the well-structured Student Work Guide and the My Transitions Booklet.
The DVD features interviews with six real-life students with specific learning disabilities and/or ADHD before and after their transition to high school. They openly discuss the challenges they have faced and how they have attained success through self-advocacy and positive self-efficacy beliefs. This program is being implemented by regular & special education teachers, learning assistance staff and school counselors to assist elementary and middle school students in a successful transition to high school. Students gain greater confidence, become effective self-advocates, and learn how to plan for their academic future.
