Discovering My Life Through the Discovery Process

Kevin Fortunato, Chris Coulston, Cheryl Fortunato, and Ellen Coulston

This presentation chronicles the impact of educating and empowering a self-advocate to create his own pathway to the life he is entitled to have — just like you! Through the Discovery Process, creating a Positive Personal Vocational Profile and garnering the help of a self-determined self-advocate, hear the rebirth and resolve of a young student who transforms from a student being led through a transition process, to a youth leader leading his own transition. Educating family about transition and self-determination was equally important to supporting student development and success.
