Feedback Requested – Special Education & Transition

Posted May 24, 2021 by Adam in ,

Parents and students! Here is your chance to advocate and provide feedback on transition services.

The Kansas University Center on Developmental Disabilities (KUCDD) is conducting listening sessions as part of a policy analysis on transition from school to community living for youth and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).  They are interested in hearing from family members of students and adults with IDD to learn about their experiences with transition in Kansas. They are seeking families who are approaching transition, those in the transition process and those who have already experienced transition.

They are conducting two online (via Zoom) listening sessions.
12:00PM – 1:00PM Tues May 25th
5:00PM – 6:00PM Tues May 25th 

SIGN UP FOR SESSIONS HERE.  Questions e-mail Evan Dean at, or Sean Swindler,
