Middle TN Transition Academy Scheduled

STEP, Inc. (Support and Training for Exceptional Parents) is collaborating with the Tennessee Department of Education and Lipscomb University's IDEAL Program to provide this two-part Transition Academy.

This event is the place for students, parents, teachers, and service providers to find answers to their questions, make connections, and receive tools to use that will help ensure students with disabilities exit high school prepared to live, work, and participate fully in their community!

Our goal is to provide you with the tools and information necessary to empower young adults with disabilities to successfully transition from high school to adulthood.

This FREE event will be offered in two parts: an evening session on Wednesday, September 27 and a morning session on Thursday, September 28 at Lipscomb University in the Ezell Center located on Belmont Blvd. in Nashville.

You are welcome to register for one session or to join us for both sessions.
