Person Centered Approaches

Dare to Dream 2018

Person Centered
 The New Jersey Department of Education's Office of Special Education sponsored Dare to Dream Student Leadership conferences that highlighted strategies and information to prepare high school students with disabilities for college and career readiness. The conference featured keynote presentations from accomplished students and young adults with disabilities who have demonstrated exemplary self-advocacy and leadership skills. Additionally, the conference program included a variety of concurrent workshop sessions that provide conference attendees opportunities to gain insight into the transition from school to adult life process.
Mrs. Renner and members of the Haddon Heights team have attended in the past. This year, the team was invited to lead a workshop session by Bob Haugh, Transition Coordinator of the Office of Special Education Professional Development. Mr. Celli, Special Education Teacher, and Ms. Kahlbom, Speech Therapist, were honored by this invitation and attended with Haddon Heights high school students  to represent the work that the team does in this area.
Following is a description of the student led session: In this session students will choose a social media format to creatively showcase their best self!  Students will have the opportunity to create a take home replica from their selected social media platform, highlighting their strengths and dreams through guided discussion and introspection.  This breakout session encourages the use of person centered thinking and practices and supports participation of all students, educators, and related professionals.
