Event Details


Individualized Pathways Planning for Students Living with Autism - Parent Workshop

In this workshop, Individualized Pathways Planning for students living with Autism will be explored.  We will examine IEP’s, and Transition Plan as it relates to Employment, Post-Secondary Education, and Community Engagement.


One of the focuses of the workshop will be understanding customized employment and job development for individuals living with Autism Spectrum Disorder.   We will explore how to develop an employability profile, and the importance of generalization of skills and how it relates to long term success. Other topics will include integrated transition plans, individualized income generation, self advocacy, accommodations, and backward planning.


Presenter Bio - Ryan Machete

 Ryan Machete is the Transitions Facilitator with the Peel District School Board. Part of Ryan’s role is to support PPM 156, transition planning for students receiving an IEP from kindergarten and up, and the Integrated Transition Planning Protocol, which supports students with developmental disabilities from ages 14 and up. Ryan works with parents, school staff, students, and community agencies to explore pathways beyond the school system and into adulthood.


Before working for the PDSB, Ryan was a Job Developer for Persons with Disabilities as a service provider with Ontario Disability Supports Program Employment Supports. By having a clear understanding of the potential outcomes of each student, Ryan is able to coordinate individual pathway planning, and integrated transition planning with school staff, parents, community partners, and most importantly students, so that the transition to adulthood is a successful one.

Cet atelier sera consacré à la planification personnalisée de l’avenir des élèves qui vivent avec l’autisme. Nous examinerons les plans d’enseignement individualisés (PEI) et les plans de transition relatifs à l’emploi, aux études post-secondaires et à la participation communautaire.




Nous chercherons entre autres à comprendre comment s’effectue l’adaptation de l’emploi et du perfectionnement professionnel aux besoins des personnes qui ont un trouble du spectre de l’autisme. Nous explorerons les mesures à prendre pour le développement d’un profil d’employabilité ainsi que l’importance de la généralisation des habiletés pour la réussite à long terme. Parmi les autres sujets abordés figureront les plans de transition intégrés, les activités rémunérées personnalisées, l’auto-défense, les mesures d’adaptation et la planification à rebours.


Biographie du présentateur – Ryan Machete


Ryan Machete est facilitateur de transitions au Conseil scolaire du district de Peel. Une partie de son rôle consiste à soutenir la mise en application de la Note Politique/Programmes no 156, la planification des transitions pour les élèves qui suivent un plan d’enseignement individualisé de la maternelle ou plus tard ainsi que le Protocole de planification intégrée de la transition, qui offre un soutien aux jeunes de 14 ans et plus qui ont déficience intellectuelle. Ryan travaille en collaboration avec les parents, le personnel des écoles, les élèves et les organismes communautaires dans le but d’explorer les voies qui s’offrent aux jeunes entre leur sortie du système scolaire et leur entrée dans la vie adulte.




Avant de travailler pour le Conseil scolaire du district de Peel, Ryan agissait comme prospecteur d’emplois dans le cadre du Programme ontarien de soutien aux personnes handicapées : Soutien de l’emploi. Comme il a une vision claire du potentiel des élèves, Ryan est en mesure de coordonner la planification du parcours de chacun et la planification intégrée des transitions en collaboration avec le personnel de l’école, les parents, les partenaires communautaires et surtout avec les élèves eux-mêmes afin que leur transition vers la vie adulte soit une réussite.
