"Planning for Life After High School" Transition Event Scheduled

STEP, Inc. (Support and Training for Exceptional Parents) is collaborating with the Tennessee Department of Education and Pellissippi State Community College to provide a two-part Transition Event.

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 Thursday, October 20 and a morning session on Friday, October 21 at Pellissippi State Community College, 10915 Hardin Valley Road in Knoxville.  You are welcome to register for one session or to join us for both.
