Joliet Junior College Disability Services Manager Adam Wouk will discuss services available to students with disabilities at Joliet Junior College at the first District 202 “Next Steps Transition Training” meeting for this school year, on Tuesday, January 19, 2021.

The training will be held virtually at 6:30 p.m. (See the Zoom login information below.)

Wouk is a 14-year veteran educator. He started his career as a teacher and high school counselor, then shifted to supporting students with disabilities in higher education. He has worked in both community and four-year colleges and universities.

He is the current president of ILLOWA AHEAD, the regional association for college disability offices in Iowa and Illinois.

The “Next Steps” training helps parents and caregivers plan, transition and advocate for their children with disabilities. 

This is the seventh year that District 202 is offering the Next Steps Transition training for community members interested in helping parents and caregivers plan, transition and advocate for their children with disabilities.

The Next Steps team comprises District 202 Vocational Education staff focused on improving delivery of services to families of students with disabilities; increasing family awareness of disability options and resources; and linking families in need to agencies that can support them with issues related to transition.

“Next Steps” team members include Kathy Thomason, vocational coordinator of the Work Training Program at Joliet Junior College; and Plainfield Academy vocational coordinator Colleen Goldenberg.
