Barb Blakeslee Beck, M. Ed., author and founder of My Key Consulting LLC, has developed a highly effective person-centered program, which is the first step toward supported progress in transition services. My Transition Portfolio is unique in its design and is a long-awaited platform for students, teachers and parents alike. It has the potential to change the way we view transition planning for young adults with disabilities by way of an invitation into the invaluable process of developing their own dream.
Barb Blakeslee Beck has taught special education for 20 years with an emphasis in adult transition services for students ages 18-21. Her degrees in Speech Language Pathology and Special Education have enabled her to engage students and their families in providing positive post-school outcomes. My Transition Portfolio is her response to answering some of the important questions raised when trying to bridge the gap from research to practitioner. It provides a great process in transferring person-centered information between secondary schools and adult service agencies. Barb’s efforts both within and outside the classroom are continually focused on finding ways for students to be known, heard, and celebrated for their unique contributions to their communities.
