Between the ages of 14-18, students, parents and case managers should be discussing the transition needs of each the student at his or her IEP meeting. During this time, if there are unmet transition goals and objectives it would be appropriate to discuss Independent living and vocational skill training beyond high school.
Our staff strives to create a nurturing environment where students may improve their quality of life through choices, relationships, and a presence in the community. Participants are challenged to reach their maximum potential as they transition from school to work. There is an emphasis on maintaining socially acceptable behavior at all times.
Every student in the STEPS program has the opportunity to express what their goals are for the future. A team of job coaches assist students in finding the job that they are good at and like. All students also participate in a job class, learning job related skills, interview skills, how to fill out an application, and creating their resume. Students also have a training agreement when on a job in the community.
