Webinar Series: CTE for Students with Disabilities

This webinar series has received a very positive response. There is a 500-person limit in our webinars. If you are unable to login to the webinar, a recording will be posted at this same location within a few days. We will also post any relevant handouts that are shared during the webinar, as well. Thank you for your patience.

Changes in Perkins V and an increasing emphasis on college and career readiness for all students are bringing the needs of SWD to the forefront of the CTE conversation. This five-part webinar series will take a deep dive into programs, practices and partnerships among CTE and special education practitioners that support SWD in CTE. Each webinar will last 90 minutes, including Q & A, and will be available for later viewing here at https://transitionta.org/events-details.

This series is a collaboration among Penn State University’s Workforce Education program, the National Technical Assistance Center on Transition (NTACT) and ACTE.
