Transitions Program

Our program is designed to meet the unique transition needs of young adults aged 18-22. We believe in a collaborative approach, bringing together staff, students, families/caregivers, and community providers to identify individual strengths and interests. Together, we develop tailored plans that provide instructional and community opportunities to address various transition needs. 

We encourage students to advocate for themselves, promoting independence and self-confidence in decision-making. Our program empowers students with essential skills for independent living, ensuring they are equipped to navigate daily life with confidence. Students also learn effective communication and social skills to empower them in building meaningful connections with others. Additionally, we build a foundation for successful employment by honing practical and marketable skills relevant to each student's unique abilities and aspirations.

For students considering post-secondary education, our program provides specialized support in preparation for college. This includes guidance on understanding resources and supports available through disability services to ensure a smooth transition into higher education.

In addition to personalized instruction, students receive related services outlined in their Individualized Education Plans (IEPs). These services may include Speech-Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Developmental Adaptive Physical Education. Our program also offers social work and mental health support, with specialized social work groups for students requiring additional assistance in these areas.

At Intermediate District 287, we are committed to nurturing the potential of each student, fostering independence, and preparing them for a successful transition to the next phase of their lives.

We have 4 locations across the West Twin Cities Metro
