The Transition Program is co-educational for young adults, ages 18-21, who are in need of a supportive interim setting before pursuing higher education or employment opportunities. The Transition Program was designed with research in mind; studies show that programming is necessary for young adults with disabilities to generalize skills learned in controlled environments to their daily lives.
The goal of the Transition Program is for students to generalize social, coping, and life skills to school, work, and leisure settings through coaching and guided practice. Students in the Transition Program have the opportunity to explore vocational interests with job placements, shadowing and job coaching opportunities.
Students may also choose to register for college courses at the local community college and benefit from support from coaches and staff to practice study habits, time management skills, and increase organization through Executive Function development. In addition, staff support students in developing the independent living skills necessary for their future.
