Youth Transition Services - Generally, students and families are concerned with and dealing with what options they may have after leaving high school. These options can be divided into three main areas:
- Educational
- Vocational
- Residential

Educational Options can vary considerably based on the student’s abilities and preferences. The student may want to pursue college or technical school. The student may need training on how to safely cross the street.

Vocational Options may involve training for a career or assistance with a job search. In many cases, the first resource for vocational related activities is the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR).

Residential Options are designed to assist the student with special needs to be as independent as their skills allow. The supports can run the gamut from assistance in the home to supported apartments to group homes to assistance finding the student’s own apartment.
