Our summer experience for the Transition Program is designed to give teens real world experiences as an employee in a field of their interest. It’s an incredible chance for them to utilize the skills they’ve worked on during the school year such as: making their own lunches, choosing an appropriate work outfit, utilizing public transportation, and using adaptive technology – all in a supported yet challenging environment.
