Disabled youths in Howard County to get workforce help

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman has launched an initiative to assist youth with disabilities in their transition from secondary education to the workforce and to more advanced training.

Ulman has created the Howard County Transition Council for Youth with Disabilities through an executive order. The Transition Council is comprised of 35 members who will oversee strategic recommendations, developed by an earlier workgroup created by the Howard County Public School System, that explored ways to improve post-secondary outcomes for students with disabilities.

The Transition Council is headed by Judith Pattik, coordinator for special education with the Howard County Public School System.
