Sharpen Your Pre-ETS Skills!

How many of you receive a newsletter in your inbox, but don’t ever get to read it?  I have many emails that I receive everyday from newsletters that I save because I “might” use it at a later date and I also  have the ones that I  still receive because I click delete it before even thinking it would be best to just unsubscribe from it.   However, among all of those messages, I get the weekly newsletter from the National Transition Technical Assistance Center (NTACT) and always find something that I can share with others working with students of transition age. 

This week, NTACT shared information on a five part webinar series on pre-employment transition services they co-hosted with The Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center (WINTAC).  This five part Webinar Series on Pre-Employment Transition Services is linked through the George Washington University Center for Rehabilitation Counseling Research and Education at this website:  This series features: curricula/activities, state spotlights, examples of expected outcomes and ways to identify student progress, tips for successful service delivery, and additional supports and resources that may be used.  

If you are looking to increase your knowledge of Pre-ETS and stay up to date on this topic, this is a way for you to learn or get a refresher at your own pace.  From the entire series, I found the Self-Advocacy one the most interesting.  It even included information related to the transition guide I shared in my last article in September.

If you have a transition topic that you need more resources for or another topic you would like covered in this year’s transition articles, please email me at
