Life Roles Transition Center

The Life Roles Transition Center (LRTC) provides individualized educational and community-based programming aligned with the MA Common Core and the National Transition Standards. The program serves students aged 15 – 22, who have fulfilled their MCAS Alternate Assessment requirements and are working towards a certificate of completion. LRTC provides students with individualized services that range from functional academics to community-based instruction, meaningful internships/work experiences, and learning skills related to independent activities. Instruction in activities of daily living, self-advocacy, employability skills, social skills, and pragmatic language are all part of LRTC’s commitment to support students as they transition to adulthood.

Transition assessments identify and prioritize students’ interests, preferences, strengths, and needs. Data from assessments is used to develop a comprehensive individualized action plan with post-secondary goals for education and adult living. Supervised school and communitybased life experiences are part of a holistic approach to transitioning students from school to communitybased adult life. LRTC offers 10-month programming with the option of Extended School Year Services and 12-month programming based on each student’s IEP.
