Do you want to be a college graduate?
Have a meaningful career? Live independently?
Then Transitions is the program for you!
The Transitions program focuses on building academic skills, life skills and general independence for high school graduates and young adults with autism and learning differences. Its specialty isn’t just in teaching students how to study or learn a trade – it’s in showing its students that they can live a life that even they never dreamed of.
Through partnership with local colleges, internships in community businesses and supported living opportunities, Transitions helps young people on the autism spectrum or with learning differences make successful transitions from adolescence to young adulthood. Students have access to state-of-the-art facilities, an experienced staff and an evidence-based curriculum that provides individualized attention and training in skills students will use for the rest of their lives. Transitions gives students the tools and supports they need to learn, thrive, and live happy and productive lives that they and their parents hoped for, but never thought possible.
