Discovering the Future - April 2020
Transition for School to Adult Life for Students with Visual and Multiple Disabilties, Including Deafblindness

Due to uncertainties associated with recent public health concerns, we are sorry to report that “Discovering the Future” is postponed until further notice.  We appreciate your understanding, and look forward to rescheduling this event as soon as possible.

This weekend workshop is designed for families of middle school and high school students with visual and multiple impairments, including those who are Deafblind, who will need significant long-term services and supports in the community. Participants will gain new ideas about making plans for adult life after graduation when traditional paths to college and career may not seem like the best fit.

Please join us to learn more about strategies for planning and executing a person-centered transition plan for your family member. This event will be highly interactive, and is designed to help families discover new possibilities for rewarding lives after graduation. Participants will learn about finding and advocating for the support and resources they need to navigate along the way and reach their individual destinations.

NOTE: Families of students who have language and academic skills to participate in group discussions might be better served in a similar workshop for students who are likely to be more independent as adults, such as "Game of Life” next fall.

Registration Fees:
$40.00 per person for the Early Bird rate (Through April 3rd)
$50.00 per person for regular registration (Beginning April 4th)

Important Session Information:

Our workshop begins on Friday evening at 6:00 PM with a Family Reception at the Holiday Inn Austin Midtown. Dinner will be provided, and you will have an opportunity to meet other families and individuals who will be joining you for the weekend.

Workshop sessions will be held on Saturday and Sunday at the Holiday Inn Austin Midtown. Sessions begin at 8:30 AM and continue until 4:30 PM on Saturday, with lunch provided. On Sunday sessions start at 8:30 AM and continue until noon. A box lunch is provided on Sunday.

NOTE: No childcare or student activities will be provided on-site, so your children may not attend this event. If your child has the interest and ability to actively participate in a day-long discussion during a workshop, then the subject matter at this workshop is probably not the best match for your family.
