About Us

This site was designed and built by staff from the Yang-Tan Institute, at Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations. It was funded by a grant from the Developmental Disabilities Planning Council, to complement a three year training and technical assistance grant project begun in 1998: the Transition Technical Assistance and Support Project (T-TASP). T-TASP has provided training and support to nine demonstration sites throughout New York State that are integrating person-centered planning into transition planning and services for students with developmental disabilities so that they might become active participants in the shaping and realization of their future as adults.

We would also like to acknowledge the New York State Department of Education's Office of Vocational and Educational Services for Individuals with Disabilities (VESID) and the New York State Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities (OMRDD) for the advice and support provided throughout the duration of the grant. The construction of this site was supervised by Carol Blessing, CSW, and accomplished with the web development skills of the EDI Web Team.

Comments and suggestions are appreciated and will be addressed as quickly as possible. Thank you for visiting us!
