The I’m Determined (IMD) Project, which promotes self-determination skills for students with disabilities, is a successful program with far-reaching influence. Currently, IMD’s tools and strategies are being implemented in 7 countries, 30 states, and over 70 school divisions in Virginia. Successful teachers are able to incorporate core components of IMD such as decision making, goal setting, self-regulation, and self-advocacy into existing instructional initiatives.
One of the highlights of the I’m Determined Project is the annual Youth Summit. Held each June at James Madison University, the IMD Youth Summit hosts approximately 120 Virginia youth with disabilities and their families. Participants learn about self-determination skills from our IMD Youth Leaders.
