Transition Program

Contact:  Laurie Gendron, Consumer Care Coordinator
Phone:  585-334-6000 x2281

Who do we serve?
Individuals age 21-25 who are independent (for personal care, communication and supervision) in the community for at least 30 minutes.  Additionally, individuals must not need a barrier free environment.

What is our vision?
The Transition Program is designed to assist individuals in learning new skills and build on existing skills to facilitate growth.  It is transitional in nature - we will be working on developing skills needed to explore future options including employment (through Employee Training Program, Workshop, ACCES-VR, or independently), secondary education, Site or Community Based Day Hab, and Volunteer Opportunities.

What kind of activities are available to participants?
The Transition Program offers a wide variety of activities that are both Site and Community Based and focus on individuals' specific interests.  In addition to community outings and non-paid work experience (at locations such as Meals on Wheels, ABVI Goodwill, Salvation Army, Red Cross, YMCA, Tinker Park and U of R), we will access community based classes such as art, music, ceramics, photography and cooking.  We also offer classes in:  ADL skills to increase independence, community safety, job readiness skills, resume building, socialization/conflict resolution, self advocacy and many more based on individuals interests!
