This summer, UConn's Neag School of Education is offering EPSY 5146 – Advanced Topics in Secondary Transition, 3-Credits, 100% Online. While a part of UConn's Special Education Transition to Adulthood online graduate certificate, non-matriculated individuals can take this course as Non-Degree students. Credits earned within this course may be transferred into the certificate or may be appropriate to fulfill requirements within other degree programs.

EPSY 5146 provides an overview of the challenges individuals with disabilities face in their transition to adulthood, and further, examines the specific needs of those moving into secondary education institutions. 

Within this pivotal course, students:

  • Complete comprehensive, individualized transition assessments for individuals with disabilities.
  • Develop plans to provide community-based instruction for individuals with disabilities.
  • Focus on the importance of person-centered planning.
  • Encourage self-determination and self-advocacy
  • Learn to involve individuals and families in the assessment and transition process.

From students with autism or learning disabilities through to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, successful graduates will have the ability to help these individuals with greater capacity and a renewed understanding.
