The purpose of this Institute is to increase understanding of resources available for and facilitate planning and implementation of Florida Postsecondary Comprehensive Transition Programs (FPCTP) for students with intellectual disabilities in all types of postsecondary education institutions: universities, state and community colleges, and career tech centers.

This is a team-focused event for postsecondary education program planning teams representing a higher education institution or career tech district. Register your team of higher education faculty and staff, disability service providers, special populations coordinators, K-12 transition staff, parents, students, and/or other relevant stakeholders.

The institute format includes keynote sessions with postsecondary education leaders, breakout content sessions, facilitated team planning meetings, opportunities for your team to meet one-on-one with national and state content experts, and networking with colleagues from across the state whose innovative postsecondary education programs are serving students with intellectual disabilities and preparing them for employment.
