Secondary Career and Technical Education (CTE) has long been a viable pathway for developing the skills of students with disabilities and preparing them for the future. Changes in Perkins V and an increasing emphasis on college and career readiness for all students are bringing the needs of students with disabilities to the forefront of the CTE conversation.
This webinar provides a review of numerous pieces of legislation that impact students with disabilities, including PerkinsV. In addition, strategies to support students with disabilities in secondary CTE through appropriate program placement are provided.
Be sure to catch all five webinars in this CTE Webinar series sponsored by Penn State University's Workforce Education Program, the National Technical Assistance Center on Transition: the Collaborative (NTACT:C), and the Association for Career & Technical Education (ACTE).
