This Facilitator Guide accompanies the online learning series for students preparing to participate in educational planning meetings.

The purpose of this Guide is to assist teachers, parents/guardians, and mentors who are assisting students in completing the introductory online Journey to Self-Determination courses and developing self-determination skills. Information included in this Guide will assist adults in helping students, including students with disabilities, become more self-determined by:

  1. developing the attitude and skills needed to advocate for themselves; and
  2. becoming more actively engaged in their educational planning.
