Pre-ETS Notice

The pre-employment transition services section of the WINTAC website is undergoing review and updates based on the recent publication of the Notice of Interpretation (NOI) on Pre-Employment Transition Services in the Federal Register. We wanted to keep the pre-employment transition services information available, but we caution our users to compare the information on the site with information published in the NOI until we have completed our review and revision of the site based on the recent guidance. If you need assistance please feel free to contact the pre-employment transition services WINTAC team: Melissa Diehl @, Christine Johnson @, Brenda Simmons @, Carol Pankow @

    WINTAC has worked with Employment Resources, Inc. (ERI), the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the University of Wisconsin-Stout Vocational Rehabilitation Institute (SVRI) to design a series of web-based modules specific to the five required WIOA Pre-Employment Transition Services activities for use with students with disabilities.

  5. Childhood Meets Adulthood 
    This web site is a place for teens. It was developed by the University of Minnesota with support from the US Department of Education, Office of Special Education & Rehabilitative Services, Ideas that Work.  It is designed for youth to think about what they want to do with their future. It can be used with a teacher, mentor, parent, friend or individual. Registration is required.
  6. Transition to Work: Program Activity Guide 
    (American Foundation of the Blind)
    AFB Transition To Work Program Activity Guide

    The Transition to Work: Program Activity Guide was created for Community Rehabilitation Program (CRP) Providers, Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Agencies, and Teachers of the Visually Impaired (TVI's) working to improve employment outcomes for teens and young adults who are blind or visually impaired. This program activity guide has 19 lessons meant to address WIOA requirements. The activities included in this guide are for service providers to utilize to provide instruction and services to youth who are blind or visually impaired in three of the five required areas: job exploration, work-based learning, and workplace readiness training. The activities can be printed, access electronically, and even e-mailed. The activities are also available as electronic braille files (BRF) in the Unified English Braille (UEB) Code ready to be embossed. The BRF files are available for download at the bottom of each lesson. Right-click and "save as" to download a file to a computer.
