The speaker will be Norm Nelson with the Emory Valley Center in Oak Ridge. The title will be “Let’s Talk About Workplace Accommodations”.
Emory Valley Center was started by a group of Oak Ridge and Clinton parents, wanting a better world for their handicapped children. In 1966, as many of the students became adults, additional services were added to
emphasize vocational training. In 1995, EVC opened a satellite Day Program in Morgan County called the Advantage Center. Emory Valley Center is funded through the Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, the U.S. Department of Human Service’s Division of Rehabilitative Services, the U.S. Department of Housing and Human Development, the Tennessee Department of Education, and the United Way.
