I'm Determined (Virginia Department of Education) (Updated April 2021)


The I’m Determined project, a state directed project funded by the Virginia Department of Education, focuses on providing direct instruction, models, and opportunities to practice skills associated with self-determined behavior. This project facilitates youth, especially those with disabilities to undertake a measure of control in their lives, helping to set and steer the course rather than remaining the silent passenger. There are resources and videos for Educators, Parents and Youth.

Youth and Parent Summit - The Youth and Parent Summit is an amazing opportunity to learn more about becoming more self-determined, meet new friends, and work together to empower students.
