Guardianship/Supportive Decision Making Presentation

 Welcome back to your favorite Transition Blog! Now that our school year has become more predictable, I am planning on keeping everyone up to date on Adult Service and transition-related happenings here on this blog. 
 Last night, I was able to present to about 30 families information on Guardianship and Supportive Decision Making. If you were unable to attend the presentation but would like further information on the subject, you can find the presentation by clicking here, or by clicking the "Guardianship/Supportive Decision Making Presentation" link on the right-hand side of this page.
 After viewing the documents, please feel free to reach out to me with any additional questions or concerns.

Take care!

Lessons Learned from Indicator 13 Audit

Hello my fine friends!
 As you may or may not know, last spring, Minooka High School went through an Indicator 13 audit. The good news is, we survived the audit with just a few corrections! The bad news is, we have a few corrections!
Please take a look at the handout on the right hand side, "Lessons Learned", to keep these corrective actions in mind when writing your Transition Plans. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 815-999-7210. I hope you are having a swell start to the school year!

Take Care,

JJC Disability Services

Hello Fine Transition Fans!
 Welcome back to the 2017-2018 School Year. Please bookmark this page as your go-to news for anything transition related. I will be going through the blog in the coming week to make sure that each link is as updated as can be. 

 As for new information for this current school year, not a whole lot has changed. Locally, our Joliet Junior College StAR program has changed it's name to Disability Services. They are hoping the name change will allow students and others to know what the function of their department is. Mindy Diaz is still the contact and you can find the updated flyer under helpful links. 

 As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at or at 815-999-7210.
