Toolkits

NTACT hosts "toolkits" of resources on a variety of topics, related to secondary education and services for students with disabilities and the capacity building associated with improving such education and services. These toolkits provide an overview and then step-by-step guidance and resources on the specific topic. In this section you'll find resources on content such as competitive integrated employment, or transition assessment; as well as strategies such as planning and implementing evaluation of your work, or hosting a transition fair. Take a look!
