It’s Not Crazy Making: Helping Youth with Mental Health Needs Avoid Transition Cliffs
Web-based Event
No Location Specified
Youth with educational and career challenges, such as those with mental health needs, too often fall off the cliff between youth and adult systems or get sent down an inappropriate service tunnel based on considerations given by the system rather than the youth’s wants and needs. This webinar will provide information on the incidence of mental health needs in youth, and on strategies and services that might benefit youth with mental health needs. It will discuss support services needed for youth with mental health needs entering the workforce and include information on developing practical and effective policies, suggestions for creating greater collaboration among programs, and strategies for developing an improved transition and workforce development system for youth, including youth with mental health needs.

American Youth Policy Forum: Districts’ Use of Research to Support Struggling Schools
Forum
No Location Specified
“Districts’ Use of Research to Support Struggling Schools” is one of a series of Capitol Hill forums hosted by the American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF), to challenge participants to think differently about how research informs policy and practice. This forum will discuss how research has been used in schools and districts, focusing on how educators define, use and diffuse research evidence and the importance of social networks in mediating and disseminating evidence and how this research is being used to support policy and practice in their districts, as well as the larger policy context. This forum is part of a series of events showcasing a body of work supported by the W.T. Grant Foundation that examines how research is being used in state and local education agencies and in the development of the Common Core State Standards.

Building Positive Relationships to Prevent Drop-Out and Other Negative Outcomes
Teleconference Call
No Location Specified
Transitioning into adulthood includes staying in school through graduation, avoiding teenage pregnancy, remaining drug and alcohol free, and obtaining linkages to postsecondary education, living, and employment. These tasks are accomplished through learning the social and academic skills needed to navigate life demands within and outside of school settings. For children and youth with disabilities, building positive relationships is integral in this process. This teleseminar from the National Dropout Prevention Center for Students with Disabilities will include specific examples of research-based strategies for enhancing students’ relationships with teachers and peers, strategies for fostering collaborative relationships with families, and will stress the importance of outreach to specific groups of students with disabilities who have very negative outcomes, including youth who are in foster care and those who are homeless.
