CLEE Self-Advocacy Curriculum Helps Nashville Students

Making a seamless transition from high school to post-secondary education, employment, vocational training, or independent living can be difficult for students with disabilities.

CLEE’s Self-Advocacy Curriculum and support services can assist students in making a successful transition from high school to career or college.

Recently, Ms. Jones-Sanders and her students at Hunter’s Lane High School in Nashville have been working with CLEE staff Melvin Jackson using CLEE’s Self-Advocacy Curriculum.

Ms. Jones-Sanders took advantage of CLEE’s intensive coaching to prepare all her students for a successful transition. Mock interviews, resume writing, and job application activities, in particular, really helped two of her students prepare for jobs they have arranged at exit this May.
