Summer Immersion Experience

Do you want to experience what college is like?
Or try living away from home?
Do you want to learn and practice the skills that employers want?

The Transitions SUMMER IMMERSION EXPERIENCE is a readiness program for students with autism, ADHD and other learning differences. For Summer 2021, we will be safely in-person for our two- and three-week sessions.

Choose between two specialized tracks according to your needs and goals for the future

College And Beyond

Personalized and innovative pre-college programs for students entering grades 9-12 or transferring colleges.

Students thrive best where a college’s supports best match their unique needs, but schools vary in the supports and resources they offer to students with ASD/LD. This program will help students determine what their needs are and, through tours and hands-on exploration, expose them to different types of college programs so they can decide which setting best fits them.

  • Tour colleges and learn about their ASD/LD supports
  • Work at an internship with coaching and feedback
  • Earn college credit
  • Learn communication and social skills
  • Hear firsthand from college students just like you
  • Live in college dorms with roommates
  • Learn independent living skills

Career And Life

Life-changing and individualized career prep programs for young adults up to age 27 who want to start careers and live on their own.

The career-focused program will teach students core skills essential for career success. Statistically, most people lose their jobs not due to incompetence, but rather to lack of preparation for how to act at work. Transitions will work with its students to help them find and keep jobs that make them feel happy, secure and fulfilled.

  • Work at an internship with coaching and feedback
  • Learn and practice the skills employers want
  • Develop an employment portfolio
  • Tour prospective job sites and speak to employers
  • Earn college credit
  • Learn independent living skills
  • Enhance your personal safety skills
