Connections

IDEA defines transition services as:
A coordinated set of activities for a student, designed within an outcome-oriented process, which promotes movement from school to post-school activities, including post-secondary education, vocational training, integrated employment (including supported employment), continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, or community participation. The coordinated set of activities shall be based upon the individual student's needs taking into account the student's preference and interests, and shall include instruction, community experiences, the development of employment and other post-school adult living objectives, and acquisition of daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation.

Connections provides systematic transitional services that expose students to activities which promote positive outcomes in: social skills, communication, pre-vocational/vocational/employment skills, community living, functional academics, navigation through the community and self-determination. Each student has an individual plan that is unique to their choices, special needs and personal vision.

Connections focuses on abilities, interests, strengths and goals to prepare our students for individual living, future education and employment. Connections assists students to become effective self-advocates and in exploring work and post-secondary options. Our goal is to help students have a seamless transition to adult services, community opportunities and life. We accomplish this goal by providing a coordination of services, with an interagency collaborative approach, for access and connection to adult services, that supports and assists a student's vision and generates skills that can lead to a full life.

Vocational Work Sites

When your place of business is used as a job training site, you help individuals gain fundamental skills to transition to the world of work.  When you employ a person with a disability, you gain a dedicated, happy, loyal, productive employee that will bring a positive energy and commitment to your company.  You gain an employee that is goal driven and actually strengthens your team.  You will also give your employee a sense of dignity and the ability to become an essential contributor to society.
