Adult Transition Program
The unemployment rate of persons with disabilities is very high. The Adult Transition Program (ATP) seeks to help young adults with special needs aged 18-22 transition into adulthood and, if possible, part-time or full-time employment.
To become positive, productive, and contributing members of society, ATP students must demonstrate mastery of a continuum of skills based on their unique ability levels with the goal of successfully transitioning to adult living.
Skills such as communication, mobility, independent living, and technology will be developed through classroom and community-based instruction (CBI).
Students will show respect for themselves and others, maintain regular attendance, exhibit good citizenship, and show an appreciation for diverse cultures.
The program serves individuals with a wide range of challenges, especially those with developmental disabilities.
Students may attend classes at Skyline College. All instruction takes place in integrated, age appropriate, functional, community based settings.
The ATP utilizes a supported employment model to place students in appropriate work, community, and school settings, while teaching the skills necessary for success in those settings and identifying and putting in place natural supports.
