Transition Tidbits May 23, 2022

Hi Everyone 

Hard to believe it is time for our last Transition Tidbit of the year. We wanted to thank you for all you have done for your students this year. It has been great getting to work with each of you and we are looking forward to next year…. After some much deserved time off. To end the year we wanted to share a few resources for your summer learning. We also included a survey to gain your feedback on how we can improve our support throughout the year. Finally, be sure to check out the OCALI Journey webinar at 2:30 today which focuses on Transition Planning for the Whole Child. 


  • We have talked about this being in the works and now it is official. OCALI has updated their AATA tool. This is a great resource to assist you as you work to collect meaningful Age Appropriate Transition Assessment data. The tools takes you through essential questions that you want to work through when developing AATA. The questions allow the user to build their knowledge of AATA and how the data can be used. The tool also has many resources that can be used to collect AATA. 

OCALI What Works for Work

  • Another item we have talked a lot about this year have been the Evidenced Based Predictors and Practices for post secondary transition success. OCALI has a great series that not only explains these predictors and practices but contains videos, notes, and resources to help not only explain each but also how you can implement them in schools. 

OCALI Take 5 Webinars 

  • Another great resource, from OCALI,  to explore over the summer months. This link will take you to a library of very short videos all on different topics related to postsecondary transition planning. Along with the short video are resources to help you understand more about the topic as well as to implement it. Also, included are external links to take you to even more resources on the topic. Like most things, this can be overwhelming. You may have an easier time if you find a topic you want to improve for next year and just stick to that instead of trying to do all of them. 

Feedback Survey 

  • As we mentioned earlier, we have really enjoyed getting to work with all of you this school year. We want to always get better at what we do and want to enhance the support we provide you throughout the year. With that being said, please take a minute or two to complete the survey. We value your input and will use it as we begin to plan for next school year. Thanks for all you do and have a great summer.
