Agency Connections

2015-2016 Webinar Series Archive

The "Agency Connections" Webinar Series is designed to give participants an overview of several agencies that work with students with disabilities as they transition from school to work. It is important that all teachers (students' and families first point of contact regarding transition), have a basic understanding of the resources and supports available to all students; this includes students for whom competitive employment may not be an option.

Live CCTS webinars are open captioned. Please email to request a copy of the caption transcript (be sure to include the webinar's title).
