Welcome Tony. Great to see your interest in Transition!
http://transitionus.ning.com/group/transitionohiousa is your link to the new Transition page for Ohio. Feel free to join in the activities. Use the COMMENT WALL to say Hello to the others. Reinforce the good things they are doing. Mention something you're interested in. Ask a question. Start a discussion. Let me know if you would like to be an Admin on this page to help build and maintain your group's Resume. Have fun!
