    This was a very good presentation – I loved the strategies applicable for teachers of students with ASD or related disabilities. We will certainly share this information with teachers around Colorado.

    This was a great presentation. I found numerous ideas that I can use within my classroom and with my students. Is there a documentation sent to the participants that took part in the webinar and who should I contact if I didn’t receive any yet?

    Jennifer and Alissa share Task Analysis info for those interested. There is a document newly added above and a short “how-to” video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIAJ8SKLkGY

    I know we are officially past our discussion period, but Alissa and Jennifer have a few additional resources for those interested! The first is a GREAT guide to Apps and how they are used (in our list of resources above).

    Great resource with some specific ideas that can be used for support! Is it okay to share screens of the powerpoint in a presentation I am doing on transition as long as I reference the VCU/Transition Coalition origin?

    Unfortunately, this is research material and we do not have approval or consent for anyone outside of our team to use it. I am so sorry!
