Special education teachers at Albertville High School work to prepare children with special needs for life after high school


ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – As someone with a learning disability or as a parent of a child with LD, there are many decisions to make about life after high school. In Marshall County, two special education teachers held an event Tuesday night to help parents make that plan.

Lawanda Mitchell and Paula Keillor, two special education teachers at Albertville High School, say many of their students’ parents don’t know where to start when it comes to planning for life after high school. They say it’s a statewide issue that parents are struggling with knowing what’s available to them.

The event, called Stepping Stones, was designed to educate parents of special needs students in grades seven and up across the county about the importance of starting the process early.

Several representatives from several community organizations were present to explain what they have to offer and where to start for parents.

Presentations cover SSI benefits, employment, college opportunities, and more. contains information about
