Donna Spotton

Donna Spotton comes to the Yang Tan Institute with over 25 years of experience as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. She worked for 20 years as a vocational evaluator and vocational intake coordinator for Adults and Children with Learning and Developmental Disabilities (ACLD). Donna found her passion for transition during this time. Her role in the Community Employment Specialist grant, funded through ACCES-VR, allowed her to support educational organizations in improving the connections to adult services being made for students with disabilities. Donna has served as a Transition Specialist in NYSED’s OSE Educational Partnership for the past 2 ½ years. She comes to the Yang Tan Institute as a Transition Associate, supporting the Transition Technical Assistance Partnership (T-TAP).
