Naperville IL (PRWEB) January 22, 2004
Wizdom Education, the premiere source for special education planning and management software for school districts, educators and service providers, announced today that the company is working closely with NCUSD 203 to implement the latest version of its Flagship Product the Wizdom TransPlanner!
ÂThe Wizdom TransPlanner! is our vision for the future, this new service provides a valuable tool that will greatly increase the efficiency of all participants in the process.Â, said, Kitty Murphy, NCUSD 203 Director for Special Education. Through Wizdom Educationlive! and the TransPlanner!, parents of our children will have access to the same community service provider information that our staff uses for their Individual Transition Plans
The Wizdom TransPlanner! helps students with disabilities, their parents, and case managers effectively plan the transition from school to life after graduation. Via the internet/intranet through all phases of transition planning, TransPlanner! Automatically develops active Individual Transition Plans (ITP) for students with disabilities.
This new service allows literally anyone with an interest in obtaining information about any Special Education Community Service Provider to create their entry point into Wizdom EducationLive!. When the have entered, they have access to standard Information Files on each Community Service Provider that matches their search.
TransPlanner! creates the plan automatically and does automatic resource mapping the most appropriate service providers for a particular individual. TransPlanner! maintains all records associated with the student and the plan. TransPlanner! can even keep track of every calendar event for students and faculty and send out notices of pending or impending actions and events.
With user permission TransPlanner! keeps track of inquires made to service providers.
The contents of the three year Transition Plans are maintained in a database designed to easily generate reports that can be used to help insure compliance, accountability and completeness.
ÂBecause Service Provider information is maintained automatically by the Service Providers using WizdomÂs patent pending process,Â said Dennis E. Wisnosky, Wizdom founder. ÂEducationLive! users can be sure that it is current.Â ÂIf the information is more than 30 days old, Wizdom sends the Service Providers a gentle reminder that it must be reviewedÂ.
Wizdom research shows that Community Service Provider information that is more than ten weeks old is often unreliable. Wizdom warns users if this situation occurs.
Wizdom automatically generates Service Provider Info Files from a simple, easy to use form that is filled out by the Service Provider. Using this approach, Wizdom can be sure that each ÂInfo FileÂ looks the same to the end user. This greatly increases the efficiency of the information finding process.
Users of Wizdom EducationLive! can read, print, and return to Info Files at any time. Users can send an Inquiry to the service provider by scrolling to the bottom of the Info File and clicking on Inquiry, typing a question and clicking on Submit.
