Life After High School

5-21-18 Transition Symposium info

SUPAC, Keilberman, MVCC and Central RSE-TASC are pleased to announce,

“GLITCH - Enpower Transtion through Technology"

 Transition Symposium.”

When students with disabilities grow, learn, and innovate with technology (GLITCH), they create, shape, and maximize their abilities. Please join us as we explore tools, applications, and practices to help students successfully transition to the world of work, post-secondary learning, and independent living!

Our goal is to help students find opportunities and services so they can achieve their post-secondary goals and dreams. The “Transition Symposium” will provide information and resources for living, learning and working after high school. This unique combination of workshops and information tables will help educate students and their families to unlock their potential options for their future.
