Transition Program

The L.I.F.E. transition program is for students 14-21 years old that are best served by working towards more individualized goals rather than traditional academic goals.

All transition students are assessed using the Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS) to help inform the creation of individualized goals for their planning document.

Individualized Goals

True success starts with determining what is really important to students and their families.

We have now added our Transition to Employment (T.T.E.) Program since this video was filmed in 2019.

Three Transition Program Options

There are currently three program options within the L.I.F.E. Transition Program: Quality Living, Functional Living, and Transition to Employment (T.T.E.).

Quality Living is designed for young adults with emphasis in providing opportunities for student engagement in leisure and sensory enriched therapeutic activities to improve overall quality of life.

Functional Living is designed for young adults with emphasis on improving their independence to help prepare them for adulthood, with focus on functional living skills.

Transition to Employment (T.T.E.) is focused on preparing young adults for the workforce, with focus on providing them with the foundational skills  necessary to obtain and sustain successful employment.
