Adult Transition Program

The Adult Transition Program provides individualized educational and community-based transitional services to students ranging in age from 18 to 22 years. Students may have fulfilled their MCAS or MCAS Alternate Assessment requirements and may be completing their district credit requirements for graduation, or they may be working towards a high school certificate of attendance/completion. The program serves students who have been diagnosed with high functioning autism, neurological challenges, and learning disabilities. Students demonstrate foundational skills and performance levels in the areas of cooperation with others, handling transitions, adapting to change, and safety in school, the workplace and the community.

The program is designed to provide students with individualized education, transition and therapeutic services that range from functional academics to community based instruction, meaningful internships/work experiences, and recreation/leisure activities. Instruction in functional academics, activities of daily living, self-advocacy, employability skills, social skills development, pragmatic language skills and community based experiences are all part of the program’s commitment to support students as they develop competencies that will assist them as they transition to adult life. The individualized coordinated set of activities and instruction provided to each student is designed to maximize independence and enable students to become successful, valued, and productive adult members of society.
