Frequently Asked Questions:
 

Q. How much does MyTransPlanner! cost?

A.

When you license the use of MyTransPlanner! online for a single child/student, the cost is $49.97 per year, renewable yearly.

If a school, state, or other organization wishes to license MyTransPlanner! the cost will depend on the number of students/youth/children or other users. It usually is substantially less per user when it is licensed through the school or state.

 
Q. How can I purchase MyTransPlanner!?

A.

It's simple. Just click on the "Sign up for MyTransPlanner" button on the left.

 
Q. How often can I use MyTransPlanner!? Can I use MyTransPlanner! just one time or many times? A.

Your subscription is for one year. In that year your child and you can take the survey as many times as you wish. You can return to view and print the plan and reports as many times as you like.

And if you use the plan for tracking progress, you may find yourself using the plan on a weekly basis. You can renew your subscription to use MyTransPlanner! for as many years as you wish. You may want to use it all the years your child is in high school.

 
Q. How does MyTransPlanner! help my child? A.

Like all parents, you want your child to make the most of his or her time in high school so he or she will be as prepared as possible for life as an adult.

You can use the MyTransPlanner! survey to collect what your child and you are hoping for your his or her post high school education, training, employment, home life, and participation in your community. (When you use the MyTransPlanner! survey you are following a “results-oriented process” to help identify “appropriate postsecondary goals.”)

You will find that the survey will help you and your child become aware of and discuss many issues that may affect your child after high school.

You are also collecting information about what your child can already do towards meeting post secondary goals (this is called an “age appropriate transition assessment”).

With this information and the push of a button, MyTransPlanner! creates a 3-year plan (also called a “coordinated set of activities”) and summary reports. The plan is based on your child’s needs, taking into account his or her strengths, preferences and interests.

Q. How did Wizdom Education get the survey questions for MyTransPlanner!? A. Wizdom Education wrote the questions based on Federal guidelines, best practices we’ve learned, and what we’ve learned from teachers, kids, and parents.
 
Q. Okay, my child answered all the questions in the Survey and generated the Plan. What next? A.

You can take the results of completing the MyTransPlanner! survey – the plan and reports – to your child’s high school special education TRANSITION – IEP meetings to help do the following:

  • Keep the focus on the future – on your child’s life beyond high school and outside of the classroom walls.
  • Keep the focus on improving your child’s academic and functional achievements and identify your child’s post secondary goals.
  • Summarize what your child can do and needs to learn. Identify instruction, related services, community experiences, and courses of study (included in what is called “transition services”) needed to assist your child in reaching your his or her goals.

You may find that the plan and reports may also help your school re-think how they will serve you and your child to facilitate your child’s movement from school to post-school activities.

 
Q. I am a teacher. Can teachers and other school staff use MyTransPlanner!? A.

Certainly, and we encourage school and state educational personnel to consider a school or state license which may cost less to use on a per-student basis.

Also, Wizdom Education can set up MyTransPlanner! to provide schools and states with additional information.

  • For example, transition services available through local community service providers.
  • Or, additional information about formal, standardized age appropriate transition assessments.
  • Or, connections to service providers with information stored in county or state databases.

For more information on school and state licenses and installation, contact Phil Vitkus at 630.357.3000 x3004 or pvitkus@wizdom.com.

 
Q. I am a parent. Do I let my child answer the questions or do I answer the questions for him/her? A.

The best results for your child will occur when the two of you go through the survey together. As you do, you can discuss and come to agreement on answers to the questions. (If you force your opinions on your child, you won’t get the buy-in you need for him or her to work at school as hard as he or she needs to.)

Especially when it comes to post-secondary (post high school) goals, encourage your child to express what he or she is looking to do. The best answers are honest answers.

Do not answer “I don’t know” because that’s the easy thing to do. However, if “I don’t know” is an honest answer, then answer a question that way.

For parents of children who are moderately or severely cognitively impaired, you may find it necessary to answer the questions for your child. As much as possible, provide answers that reflect your child’s preferences.

Q. Do I need my own computer to use MyTransPlanner!? A. No, your child and you can use MyTransPlanner! on any computer as long as you have a connection to the Internet. If you do not have a computer in your home, ask at your local library to use a computer in their building.
