About the event

As our transition-age sons and daughters look ahead toward greater independence in creating their unique paths to employment and satisfying adult lives, we parents are simultaneously learning how to let go.

This presentation, given by Tina Calabro, features stories of young adults with different types of disabilities who have made successful transitions from school to work and other aspects of adult life. Articles and information about key resources will be provided.

Tina is a parent, advocate, and “connector” in the Pittsburgh disability community. Her work as a writer and speaker expands public understanding of disability, highlights people and organizations that are creating opportunity and positive change, and links individuals and families to resources.

Her popular newspaper column, “Breaking Down Barriers,” which ran for 12 years in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, has been recognized for increasing awareness of issues and amplifying voices in the disability community. Her feature articles and first-person pieces appear in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Philadelphia Inquirer and other publications.

Tina’s work is inspired by the remarkable people in the disability community who have shared their stories, perspectives and journeys with her. She counts her son, Mark Steidl, age 28, among her most influential teachers.

Live ASL interpretation will be provided. Please request any other accommodations by registering as soon as possible.
