In 2001 CTC became the exclusive marketing agent for Talent Assessment out of Jacksonville, Florida, in the states of Louisiana and Mississippi. It was at that time the company name changed to Curriculum Transition Consultants.
Founded by Ben Borden in the early 70’s, Talent Assessment publishes a number of programs designed to provide career assessment and transition solutions for Special Needs Students. The flagship program offered by CTC is Talent’s Practical Assessment Exploration System, better known as P.A.E.S. This is a campus based simulated work environment designed to provide a complete Transition solution for Special Education programs. WayPoint, the only assessment driven Career Planning, Tracking and Management System currently being offered to schools is one of Talent’s newest programs. Another new offering from Talent is the JobTalk program which is a unique work related vocabulary development program designed to help secondary students and adults transition into the real world. Over the years, the relationship has flourished and CTC now represents Talent in several states, including Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and California.
In recent years, CTC has developed relationships with additional publishers and acquired products designed to work with secondary transition and other areas including a remedial Math, Reading and Language Arts program called EduSTEPS designed to work with lower functioning students ranging from upper elementary all the way to post secondary adults.
