The T-STEP covers four areas important for transition readiness:

- Executive Function Skills – Approaching tasks in an organized manner, time management, and flexibility.
- Emotion Regulation Skills – Coping with stress and accepting corrective feedback.
- Social Skills – Getting help when needed and professional social skills.
Through funding from the North Carolina Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services and research funding from the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program, the T-STEP is offered free of charge for 16-21-year-old students with ASD across NC at AB Tech, Cape Fear, Central Piedmont, Guilford Technical, Pitt, and Wake Tech Community Colleges.
