Extended School Year and Transition Programs are also available for individuals 14 through 21 years of age currently attending school.
In addition to the traditional training program, the individuals train in a community settings on actual skills which in turn will expose the community to the abilities and talents of individuals with disabilities. The program uses a holistic approach to employability through community inclusion as well as achieving generalized skills such as social, physical, emotional and life skills. The individuals have the opportunity to participate in separate community and vocational/volunteer training programs, which provide hands-on vocational and social skills training with a community setting.
