Transition Tuesday Series Starts 2/26!

Session I - Tuesday, February 26th - Enroll Now!

To Register, Please Call 617-658-9800.

Our Transition Tuesday evening workshop series kicks off again in just one week, on Tuesday, February 26th, and space remains available. The cost is only $15 per individual session or $60 for the full series of five. Seating is limited. To register, call Amanda Renzi at 617-658-9800 or email nesca@nesca-newton.com.

All of the sessions will take place in the lower lobby of our building at 55 Chapel Street in Newton, from 7:00 – 9:00pm. There is ample free, off-street parking in the lot opposite the main entrance, marked with a blue, Chapel Bridge Park banner.
This material will be of value to the parents of adolescents and young adults with disabilities--and professionals working with them--seeking to make successful transitions from high school into post-secondary education and into the workplace.
