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. We have postsecondary education institutions from across Florida represented here today. They are joined by colleagues from our K – 12 districts, VR counselors from Florida’s Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, state leaders representing secondary and higher education, and numerous other stakeholders dedicated to improving post-school outcomes of our young people with unique abilities.
