17th Annual Transition Summit

Different Paths: Each Journey is Unique

Nurturing All Students to Help Them Flourish

Workshops, speakers and practical tips and tools for helping NH students with disabilities achieve post-school success in future education, employment and independent living. 

New in 2023: An expanded Transition Fair and afternoon workshops, designed for families!! 

Our keynote session will take place at 1:30 and is open to both the Professional and Family Paths. Speakers Gina Gallagher and Patricia Terrasi will bring us The Movement of Imperfection. Designed for caregivers of special children, this humorous, heartwarming 90-minute workshop is based on the best-selling book, Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid! A Survival Guide for Ordinary Parents of Special Children. Using hilarious anecdotes and fun exercises (no Spandex required), the sisters will show attendees how to let go of the expectations they have for their children and embrace the reality.
