East Valley students and their families are invited to meet experts on programs and services that help students with disabilities succeed in the transition from high school to adulthood.

The 2013 Transition Expo will be 5 to 8 p.m. April 2 in the Mountain View High School cafeteria, 2700 E. Brown Road, Mesa.

Many programs and services are available to ease 
and enhance the transition to life after high school.

"The transition to all that lies ahead after high school can be a difficult and stressful time for many students — especially those with disabilities," said Dan Cummins, Mountain View transition specialist. "So many families don't know about all the programs and services that are available. We have lots of information to share."

The expo will feature a wealth of resources that support students with a wide range of disabilities: about 40 local colleges, universities and vocational schools; state services; social and recreational groups; employment panels; legal panels, and nonprofit and for-profit organizations.

Students and families throughout the East Valley are welcome.


The expo is sponsored by Mesa Public Schools and the Tempe Union High School District. For more information, contact Mountain View's Rebecca Whitlock, transition coordinator, or Dan Cummins, transition specialist. Phone 480) 472-7023. Or email Whitlock at rnwhitlock@mpsaz.org.
