Presentation: Mental Health and Transition
Mental Health and Transition: Intersectionality with Other Disabilities
Presenters: Jessica Queener and Karin Grandon
Youth with mental health conditions are often overlooked in the transition process. Oftentimes, they do not qualify as a student with a disability under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) or provided accommodations/services through a Section 504 Plan. What happens as they navigate through high school? Join us as we discuss research- and evidence-based strategies for ensuring youth with mental health conditions have the tools, resources, and supports to achieve successful post-school outcomes.
This presentation will take places on Wednesday, June 19th at 10:30 AM at the 2019 National APSE Conference in St. Louis, Missouri.
