Discovery for Students (A Bridge to Employment and Adult Lives) June 4, 2024 at 8:00 am

MG&A’s Discovery for Students (DFS) empowers education teams with the strategies of Discovery, adapted to the classroom, for students with significant disabilities. This session acknowledges a stark reality — that typical transition programs do not always result in a bridge to employment for students who encounter significant complexities in their lives. Therefore, there must be another way to assist in building the bridge to help as many students as possible achieve a successful transition into their adult life and the world of work. DFS is a holistic, strengths-based approach to understanding a student, setting transition objectives and achieving employment goals. Through DFS education teams can weave information from school, home, and community – anywhere they see the student at their best – into education activities.
