Boston Special Education-Transition Taskforce releases report

On October 24 2015, Mass Advocates for Children’s Boston Special Education- Transition Workforce Taskforce released the task force report: “Inclusive Employment and Career for Boston Youth With Disabilities: Pathways to the Talent Pipeline”. They had a great turnout- 14 resource tables and over 90 attendees filled the room at the beautiful State Street facility. Hard copies of the Plan and executive summary were available, and they had a full roster of speakers, including a great keynote speaker, city and state officials and two inspiring young adults.  

Here is the link to the photos from the event:
