Transition Learning Center (TLC)
The Transition Learning Center is a regional special education program for students aged 18-21 with developmental disabilities, including Autism Spectrum Disorders and Intellectual Disabilities. Students in this program benefit from an individualized transition program designed to prepare them for life after high school. Students are grouped homogeneously by social emotional stages.
The program offers positive support within structured community and school-based environments that incorporate functional academics in those settings. The program also emphasizes opportunities for community-based vocational training and volunteering to enable students to build confidence and independence, while developing appropriate work skills.
Social and personal management skills are enhanced through a variety of transition activities. Social/recreational experiences utilize community resources in order to generalize learned skills to real-life settings.
