TCFEF creates 4 newsletters per year for teens and adults with disabilities, their families, school staff, and community members to help them transition to adulthood! In those newsletters is our mascot TATE (Teen Adult Transition Expert). TATE was drawn by a teen with Autism to discuss important vocabularly and ideas about what it means to live, work, and learn independently. But it’s time for a new TATE and we need your help!
We want to give our readers an opportunity to draw our next TATE who will be featured in 4 newsletters in 2024! The artist who is chosen will also receive a gift card! Read the requirements below and click the button when you’re ready to upload your art!
