Involving Hispanic Families in Transition

A new video points out the importance of reaching out to Hispanic families to involve them in transition planning. The video, based on research done at the Beach Center on Disability at the University of Kansas between 2013 and 2016, offers transition educators and professionals some great suggestions on what to do and not to do when talking with Hispanic families about their transitioning students.

A little side note: The researcher working with the Beach Center was Judith Gross, Ph.D., who is now the new director of the Center on Community Living and Careers and our own Indiana Secondary Transition Resource Center!
Watch Dr. Gross’ and the Beach Center’s “Transition to Employment.” (The video is listed here on the INSTRC website as a Resource too, so you can always find it using our Resource Search tools!)
