Visit the 2020 I'm Determined Virtual Youth & Parent Summit's Recorded Sessions, Virtual AT Lab & Exhibitor Resources (Virginia Department of Education, VDOE)
The Youth and Parent Summit is a three-day event held each June and sponsored by the Virginia Department of Education and the Partnership for People with Disabilities. Youth with disabilities from across the Commonwealth meet to network and discuss issues of importance to youth and young adults with disabilities.
This year, due to the travel restrictions and guidelines put in place by the governor, the event was moved online. This Virtual Summit followed a similar feel to the face-to-face events in that it included a welcome from VDOE representatives, sessions for youth which were prepared with the help from our state youth leaders, sessions for parents, a keynote address, an assistive technology lab, and exhibitor information focusing on Virginia resources for youth with disabilities.
The Virtual Summit took place during the week of June 8-12. All sessions and information will remain available to allow those who could not attend during the scheduled week to still access the information. The event is open to all who wish to participate, as self-determination skills are beneficial to all youth and adults.
