Website: Empowerment Chapters



“Empowerment Chapters” are designed to improve the transition “flow” and enhance the chances for successful outcomes. Empowerment chapters build a support team directed by the student and his/her family; and provide information that brings power of choice, self-determination, and self-advocacy. Social networks and mentorships are constructed to deepen, broaden, and enhance the elements of transition currently in place; creating an environment that reinforces esteem, inclusion, and respect in the broader school community.
