The Transition Program provides young adult the opportunity to develop skills to enter the work force or post-secondary education. Students learn important life skills like home and personal management, assistive technology, job readiness, orientation and mobility, social skills and community integration. They are able to use the kitchen, prepare their own meals using safe techniques, and learn how they can label and organize their own home so they can access things without limitations. Students construct resumes, participate in job interviews and are able to participate in on-the job training. The goal is to help these children reach their full potential. For some of the students improving Braille Literacy is an important component of their curriculum.
