How do you best negotiate when what the parent wants and child/teenager/young adult wants or does not want for the future? For example, youth wants to have a baby/raise a child, but this is not a realistic goal.
In my experience, starting young is key. I find it is more about showing and giving experiences to the student/person and allowing them to explore their PINS to see what may be the best fit for them. Exposure, job trials, job shadowing, informational interviews are all helpful. I usually start there. Finding the key reasons why they want to do what may be considered unrealistic can help to determine other career options that may be more attainable in the short term. Depending on the age, these are great for the transition section of an IEP.

All of these files that I just posted are different examples of backwards planning. Feel free to download to review later.
I don’t see the files you posted- just your message
Where are the files posted. Thanks
They are above my message.
Jen, I missed the beginning - where can I locate the handout of the session slides? Will they be sent after?
I will post gain right now!
the only link I see above the message is to register for the next workshop
Thank you for the handouts; like the steps chart - do caregivers need to initiate this or do support administrators use this process to help families?
Great question, Elaine! Anyone can initiate the steps chart.
Hopefully, because you attended tonight's session you can share them with your teams to get started using one of the tools.
Thanks, Amy - just what I was thinking!
THank you again for providing this opportunity!
Is it possible to email out the handouts to attendees? I’m not seeing any links to download them either as another attendee posted above. I only see the link for the next training also.
I think some folks, depending on your devices, you may not see the files.
But yes, they will all be online on our Ohiof2f.org website
Thank you so much.
Will you send them in email?
