The Transition Program ensures a seamless transition from school to independent adult life for young people with disabilities who need continued employment, agency support, and community and life skills training. It is our intent that students, upon exiting the program, will have part time employment in a vocation of their choosing as evidenced through the Discovery Process. They will function independently in the community and in the home to the best of their ability and will contribute positively to their family and to their community.
