Transitions programs/staff encourage and support individuals as they explore new opportunities which promote personal growth. They promote each individual’s choices – striving to provide needed supports, balancing risk with clinical judgment to ensure safety. Vocational staff offer assistance with job placement, supported employment, and job coaching.
Services offered through the various Transitions sites include Community inclusions activities, which are based on consumer interest and supported by Transitions Staff. In addition, program sites may support vocational placement, volunteer placement, educational experiences and leisure recreational experiences. Personal care, behavioral supports in a culture of gentleness, transportation, speech therapy, occupational therapy , nutrition services may be a part of the person’s daily schedule. Activities may be individual or group based experiences.
Transitions programs are operated and supported through Community Services for the Developmentally Disabled. Transitions programs provide assistance to adults with developmental disabilities in expanding life options through inclusion into community live. These expectations are achieved through skill building activities in program and community settings. The services are provided through skill building activities and are developed as part of the Person Centered Planning process. Goals and objectives are developed to address increasing independence and skills in identified areas. Activity development is built around new experiences, skill development, community integration, interpersonal skills and increased personal growth.
