For many caregivers and educators, even the possibility of a young person transitioning at school seems overwhelming if not impossible. However, some transgender students are taking this courageous step and successfully transitioning while remaining enrolled in their educational institution. What are the key elements of a positive experience? What preparation, training and conditions need to be considered as students and their families make the difficult decision to support a child's authentic gender in the classroom? After exploring key principles that must be considered when a student transitions, the session will present specific tools and resources for supporting a student to safely and successfully transition within the school community.
