State Support Team 5 News Article

Transition Tidbits October 11, 2021

Hi Everyone

Below are just a few general resources this week. The video resources, as well as the podcast, may take some time to explore but they will definitely be worth the effort. Please make sure to check out the flag football link below for a great opportunity for all students with disabilities. 

Reach for the Stars article

  • Nice article here about our Columbiana PACT friends and their Reach for the Stars store. Check it out and congrats to Kitty and all the staff and students associated with Reach for the Stars. 

Video on Self Determination / Supported Decision Making

  • Nice youtube channel about self-determination and students with disabilities. It contains videos about supported decision-making, job coaching, and more. Many of the videos contain students or adults with disabilities talking about specific topics which can allow other students with disabilities to relate. There is even a section of videos for caregivers. 

Rich Center Flag Football

  • Great opportunity here through the YYFFA and the Rich Center. They will be hosting an adapted skills camp for children with disabilities. The Watts Center on YSU’s campus will be the site for this free event on October 17. Check out the flyer and see the opportunities for boys and girls with disabilities. You can also see the event is still looking for volunteers.

OOD College 2 Careers

  • OOD Director Kevin Miller and Kristin Garrett, Ohio College2Careers (Ohio C2C) Program Administrator, join the podcast to discuss career support for college students with disabilities. Ohio C2C is an OOD program available at 17 public colleges and universities in Ohio to ensure students with disabilities have the support they need to complete their degree and/or credential, earn higher wages, and meet the demands of tomorrow’s labor market.
