In the interim, we hope to turn your attention to some resources that were posted in the conference materials section of this Community of Practice. Of course, first you have to become member and please join our community.
Some material highlights are Minnesota's "scannable" survey, Maine's transition guide, and the self-assessment tool (we encourage you to try this at home and comment about it, when you have on this post or start a discussion thread!).
Of course, please call on us if you need help accessing any of the documents. Have suggestions for other resources. Please upload them yourself or simply call and ask for help.
