Transitions and Access to Adult Services

Transitions and Access to Adult Services

The focus of this service is to help ensure that an individual with special needs who is facing a major life transition, such as aging out of public school, has a plan in place to ensure that the new environment appropriately considers skills and talents while continuing to remediate and accommodate areas of deficit. Issues that may have to be dealt with beyond public education include vocational rehabilitation and training, housing, mental health services, community integration, and many others. The key is to get services and benefits at the appropriate time. Happiness is a byproduct of feeling that you belong, are productive, contribute, and have the respect of others. Every new environment must be assessed to determine its potential for happiness and offering a sense of belonging.
