The Transition Improvement Grant (TIG) has developed a self-advocacy guidance toolkit to house TIG developed resources as well as highlight resources from national transition partners. The toolkit contains online resources such as: assessments, curricula, student led Individualized Education Program (IEP) materials, law and policy, and opportunities to grow your own learning. Self-advocacy is a predictor of post-school success for students with IEPs and the guidance will enhance the resources available and provide support for educators, students, and families.
