Separate program services eligible students, age 18 – 21, with a variety of disabilities.
Transitioning young people with disabilities from school to the adult world requires careful planning and a cooperative effort among families, school staff and community service providers. Our Transition Services Program for students with a variety of disabilities now offers separate program services for students, age 18 – 21, who have satisfied the state educational requirements and are eligible to receive further career development, instruction and support.
Community Based Work Internships
Students participate in community-based work experiences with realistic career interests to assess their employability skills and training needs, and develop the skills and attitudes necessary for eventual paid employment.
Students access vocational and functional locations within the community.
Students learn to travel safely and independently while accessing functional and work-based settings within the community through public transportation.
Students participate in volunteer experiences that teach responsibility, community involvement and an awareness of the needs of others.
Students participate in career exploration activities by visiting different types of businesses and workplace locations.
Career Readiness Workshops
Students are provided, and build upon, opportunities to explore work behaviors, attitudes and habits, customer service, effective communication and vocational exploration.
