Two Favorite Transition Resources
Mar 7, 2019 There are two resources we find ourselves recommending over and over. One is the awesome occupation exploration website, My Next Move, and the other is an insightful college readiness checklist for students and parents.
The other transition resource is a college readiness checklist. If you have a college-bound high school senior, there are only a few more months of high school left. How can you help your student or child make the best use of that time?
Assistive Tech for Loan, Demonstration and Reuse
Jan 29, 2019 Find equipment for all ages available for loan, demonstration and reuse. Assistive Technology in New Hampshire (ATinNH) has just unveiled their new online equipment database where you can browse at your leisure for needed devices.

ATinNH is a project of the UNH Institute on Disability and provides training, education, and outreach programming as well as equipment demonstrations, loans, and refurbishing.
Next Steps NH
The Next Steps NH project provided professional development and coaching to selected New Hampshire high schools for the purpose of increasing the graduation rate of students with disabilities, and students at risk. This was done through implementing evidence-informed transition planning practices that helped students prepare for college, career, and adult life.
This website was part of the project and housed all tools and resources developed as part of the project. The website is now supported by the NH Department of Education and managed at Keene State College.
