TSD (Knoxville) » STEP



The Student Transition Education Program (STEP) was created for deaf and hard of hearing young adults in Tennessee to facilitate their successful transition into productive members of society.

The focus of the program is to empower students and teach them the skills necessary to live independently and gain competitive employment.  Lessons include budgeting, functional academics, independent living skills, and vocational skills.  A job coach is available to help students find competitive employment positions.
