Transition-age students adjusting to a work environment face unique challenges. Overcoming these challenges requires a coordinated effort between students, families, school systems, and vocational rehabilitation systems.
PRIDE Industries’ transition services focus on self-determination, employment preparation and job placement. We collaborate with youth, educators, parents and service providers through:
- Meetings with families, caregivers, schools, work sites, WorkAbility, Regional Centers and the Department of Rehabilitation.
- Attendance at Individual Education Plan (IEP) or Individual Transition Plan (ITP) meetings when appropriate.
- Attendance at Transition events.
- PRIDE-sponsored Transition Advisory Board: community/parent semiannual advisory and planning meetings.
We offer a wide range of group and individual transition services that help people successfully enter the workplace, while focusing on their individual needs and interests.
