Youth Transition Services for students with disabilities focuses on career development, employment preparation, independence and community integration
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 Youth Transition Services Program for students with a variety of disabilities, age 14 to 21, focuses on career development, employment preparation, independent living and community integration through work based learning, functional academics and life skills experiences.
Designed to facilitate a seamless transition from school to work and post-school activities, the program includes social skills building, career exploration, counseling, personal finance skills, and travel training.
